Growing new things!

Today we put in our 2010 veggie garden. As usual we started by sprouting some seeds a few weeks back. To these plants we picked up a few additions from our neighborhood nursery Green Acres. Everyone and their mom were at the nursery today, I swear! Here is a shot of the contenders!

As you can see we have quite a boat load. Hopefully at least some of them will make it! Among the plants are cantaloupe, cucumber, honeydew melon, zucchini, spaghetti squash, cilantro, basil, bell pepper, cubanelle pepper, leeks, chives, corn, beans, acorn squash, two different kinds of tomatillos and four different kinds of tomato! Wow!

The garden area started out a dreadful mess, but Mr. House has been very busy working the ground and getting it ready for planting. This is what it looked like before we really dug in.

Mr. House expertly crafted nice rows and we laid out the plants to figure out where their new homes should be.

After more hard work we got them all in the ground and ready to provide us with a summer bounty!

As you can see from this final shot, fruits and veggies aren't the only things we are growing!! ;)
