Garden Colors

 Red roses ( yes, I need to spray them.)
 Orange impatients
 Pink begonias
 Yellow marigolds and orange geranium
And lots of green
 And lots of green. I have tomatoes -12 of them I think, 4 green peppers, radishes, turnips, beets, carrots, bush beans, snap beans, wax beans, cucumbers, butternut squash, summer squash, watermelon, swiss chard, onions, potatoes, collards, strawberries, garlic, and lots of herbs.

 My cucumbers all in a row.

I found this lovely parsley plant growing out of my compost. I was so glad because the one I planted from seed look spindly. If by wild chance you have not looked into the Square Foot Gardening method I highly recommend checking it out. Especially if you are only interested in a very small scale garden.You can get the book from your local library.

Nice work -- you're so ambitious with your garden! Your kids must be good vegetable eaters.

They do eat a good bit of veggies but actually Joffre is the one who beats us all in eating veggies. His favorite snacks are cabbage or a salad and as you know he is a lot to feed.
