Ready for vegetables

The "lawn" looks like this because the cats dug it up last year.

3. hello carrie!

sounds yummy!

well...i have two 4 square foot gardens. i've already put in 4 tomatoes, 4 peppers, climbing peas and climbing green beans in them so far (not done though!) i also have some containers on my side patio that i've put in beets, green onions, and radishes. oh, and i added another blueberry bush, a blue gold variety, to help the other legacy blueberry bush along. i HAVE to have cilantro and basil plants too. they will be container planted. ambitious, no?

last year was a very sad garden year except for my cukes. hopefully, this year will be better!

6. very pretty

I'd mulch it, though. Cuts down on the weeds and the watering.
