Spent the weekend shoveling some free mulch! Gotta love free!!
I think it makes it look so much better... I know you're thinking...
"Michele, it looks the same! You still haven't filled your stinking boxes yet!"
I'm trying to get there. Finances are holding me back, but I'm hoping that I can get my soil soon. And let me remind you how insane and barren my garden looked before the renovation.
Also, that little retro fridge in the corner of the garden is going to house some plants as well... when I get there. It was mine and Damin's refrigerator from when we first got married... awwww!

Super stoked on corn, squash & beans!!
I've never grown beans before and have no idea what I'm doing...
I'm stoked at the prospect of picking my own beans... I am married to a Mexican!

And my little baby pumpkin...

Michele (with one L!),
Your garden is gorgeous! I can't wait to drop by and see what else you're going to be up to, what an inspiration! When I first started my garden, a friend told me that it's a rule that it takes about 5 years to establish a vegetable garden and to feel competant as a gardener as far as what does and doesn't work in your climate area and in your particular space. It is so worth it though! Last summer I remember walking into the house after my morning harvests with thoughts of turning my garden "groceries" into meals, such a great feeling! Best growing wishes to you!

Thanks for the encouragement deetles! The plans in my head are grand and I sometimes can't keep up with myself. I really need to learn what to grow when and in my climate because I always want to grow what I feel like whenever :)
