Unveiling of the Garden!

It seems that our night time temperatures are finally warming up, and we've had a few days that are down-right hot. (followed by a few days that are down-right cold)  Since the weather seems to approve, generally, I thought it was time to pull the protective covers off of my dear plants.  I'm a little worried though.  We'll be heading out of town for a few days and it looks like some storms will be coming through while we're gone. 

Here's the before picture, or as I like to call it, the trash heap garden:

And here's the after picture:

Here's a shot of my daughter's radishes, as well as a little fence to keep the monster's hands out.  For some reason, this is her favorite spot to piggle in the dirt.  You can kind of see the bean sprouts in the background, as well as my mystery plant that is, in fact, a hosta.  A rather large one, I might add.  Four others have popped up around the patio and they are very welcome.

And here's the pots by the driveway.  There used to be a cucumber in the pot on the right, but apparently it preferred to not live with me and died.  I've never had a lot of luck with cucumbers.

I did have a very cute diagram drawn up, but then I didn't follow it exactly, so it's pretty much obsolete.  So, here is a diagram of the garden.  It may not be pretty, but it's accurate.

How is your garden coming?


  1. Looks great so far, except the poor cucumber.

    My Garden? Well..... it hasn't died yet, give it some time.... :-)

  2. It's looking good!I am making myself a raised bed or two in my Potting Place. It gets so hot out,I wanted to try something a little different this year.Pop has his regular garden, and now I am working on a not-so-hot spot for a few things.it's closer to the water source and my worm bed.I'll give an updaet as it progresses,if it does.

  3. Looks great! Sad about the cucumber :( Oh well it give you a reason to hit the farmers market!!
