Eat your Veggies!

The garden is starting to come to life so to speak!  Things are peaking up all over and I have been smiling oh so much lately:):)  

First off we added a fence into the mix to keep critters out (hopefully) and mainly my two creatures, MY dogs!!

The gate will be added soon;)

The other day I got to pick my first crop of veggies--the radishes!!  It was really exciting to think that I planted these seeds and they took off into something I CAN EAT:)  Maybe I have a slight green thumb?!

-Absolutely delicious-

-The leaf in the left corner is my squash that we planted in the center  of the radish "ring" this pattern is so the radishes protect the squash from bugs-
-A few spinach leaves have emerged,not too many though-
-a few more inches and these are up for pickin'-
-I planted some butterhead lettuce too yesterday and it should be ready in the beginning of August-love lettuce-
-Carrots are sprouting up in weird areas where I Did Not plant then as well:)  3 months for these guys though-
-another carrot-
-tomato plant that was in that cup of water I showed ya a few weeks ago, in the GROUND and ready to growwwww!-
-all three pepper types that we planted are sprouting, can't remember which one this is, maybe cayenne-
-peas please-
-the green sprouts are shallots-
-I am starting to experiment with a couple of these plants and pick the flowers off in hopes of getting bigger berries-
All the hay you see in the pics was laid down through out the garden to kill off some of the weeds and create a nice walking ground in between areas.

Hope I didn't bog ya'll down with too many pics, I had a lot to show off talk about!  Gardening can be soo much fun, so if you haven't already give it a try!!

Your garden is looking great! It's always amazing to eat something you have grown yourself, isn't it?

I enjoyed the virtual walk through your garden. Looks like things are doing nicely, and those radishes look delicious. I still let my dad do the vegetable gardening and I stick with flowers, though I did buy some seeds yesterday for oregano, cilantro, basil, and parsley. Now to figure out where to put them!
