First boxes

Post  Gena575 on 4/7/2012, 5:32 pm

We got a somewhat later star today than planned, but in 5 short hours (with only 1 trip to the hardware store!) We have plants and seeds in the ground! Excuse the bare spots in the grass, and the complete mess behind the fence. Before we bought this house the city chopped down 7 foot tall spruce trees and left the stumps. We've not figured out exactly what we are doing back there, so it looks ugly right now.

Hubby hard at work. Slight lath buying miscalculation lead to the grid only being supported on 2 sides. It will suffice for this year. I've got a whole year to figure out a new way for next year.




And we have plants in! And I seeded some things. I feel happy, so happy! Those are tomatoes across the back, marigolds in the middle, jalapenos and bell peppers next then oregano, basil and cilantro across the bottom. I'll probably stick some more flowers and herbs in the 3 empty squares.




And, because no gardening is complete without supervisors...a shot of my pups making sure we were doing it right. Pedro is the min pin (yeah, he's chunky...he'll eat anything, including Chickety doo doo, ewwwww) and Buttons is the papillon who is way too picky to eat doo doo.

Welcome to the forum. We're always happy to see new gardeners to share their stories and their bountiful photos. Your boxes are looking really good. Love your supervisors. I make do with a golden and a corgi, my blond babies, who are always there to help. Enjoy your new garden. I'm in my 4th year and look forward to it each spring.
