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.

No Rain Yet...
After only getting .31 inches of rain in June, we have received only a trace so far this month. Any thoughts of planting anything else this year have been long laughed off. What we have left may or may not survive well. The squirrels have been getting the tomatoes and peppers -even the jalepenos- before they have a chance to get to full size. Besides having to find water, their food supply is probably drying up as well.
The strawberry bed is a wasteland.
I don't think they can survive the cooking they have had the last two months. We'll have to have a new plan next year, and hope for a seasonable summer - for a change.
I am on vacation this week and have gotten some small yard projects done so far. You can see the pics here.
