Garden #4

We finally had some time to get our garden planted. I cannot even believe that this is our 4th garden in this house! How can that be possible? 

This year we have several different kinds of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and okra (the strawberry plant is still holding strong from year 2-we should have some baby ones any day now). I am giving the squash and zucchini one last go in large pots that you can't see to the right of the garden. I am also attempting what I call "mound" gardening--it's how they do it in all of the big time farms so we'll see if it makes any difference. 

You should also take note that Matt finally got our rain barrels (that have been sitting in the backyard since we moved in) in working order. We are excited to use them over the summer! 

We also planted some native plant species a few weeks ago from the Birmingham Botanic Gardens plant sale. They are all already thriving! 

And not to be forgotten is the awesome bottle tree that I've been waiting to put out since receiving it at Christmas from Mom and Dad. I LOVE IT!! 

While we worked, Mags soaked up the sun! 

So, here's to garden #4 and all of the tasty produce on it's way!!
