How Our Garden Grows

The humble beginnings of our garden two weeks after planting, May 15, 2010.

We planted our garden at the end of April this year because we wanted to host our annual Easter egg hunt before putting our tender young plants in the ground.  It worked out pretty well, except for the fact that the slugs ate all our lettuce seedlings, just as they began to sprout.  (Note the giant hole in the foreground of the photograph above.)  The green beans, tomatoes, and zucchini are all growing nicely.

Our main garden plot, May 23, 2010.
Four weeks after planting, our garden was a very happy place and we were ready to harvest our first green beans.  But we still hadn't found time to replant the lettuce.  I've done that now, but I haven't had time to take a photo of it yet.  

We also planted tomatoes in a new spot behind the garage.  They seem very happy there and I hope to have a bumper crop this year!
