My wife and I bought our first house in the spring of 2009. The next spring we built and started up our very first garden.
This is the tale of that garden and our amateur attempts to grow things.

Mid June Growth Update
It's been almost 2 weeks, so here's just a quick update to show the growth. Everything in the west garden is healthy and thriving except the Red Ruben Basil. It's not dying, but it's not thriving either. The lettuce has been cut, eaten, and cut again but still is growing well. As long as it grows, though, it will be eaten.
The strawberry plants in the east garden have recovered nicely from the early squirrel attacks. Some are obviously stunted, yet are healthy and growing. The one in the lower middle didn't make it so there are 2 dead spots. The larger plants are starting to send out runners, however, so hopefully it will all be filled in sooner than later.
