Our Gardens

This year we decided to plant a vegetable garden in the back yard.  We planted about 10 different tomato plants including Orange Russian, Yellow Pear and some unique Heirloom varieties, purple and Green Goddess Eggplant, Green & Red bell peppers, Yellow Wax Peppers, Green beans, cucumbers, strawberries, cantaloupe and a variety of herbs.  Below are some pics of us getting the soil ready.  We used some organic compost to supplement the soil.  The plants are doing well but I haven't taken any pictures of them yet.

We also planted some more flowers in the beds in the front of the house.  Lots of Ranunculus, Italian Lavender, Freesia, Delphiniums, Kangaroo Paw and a mix of neat perennials the nursery had this year.  We also planted some bulbs around in different spots including these great yellow and purple gladiolas, lilies, "dinner plate" dahlias and peonies.  They are all coming up nicely but haven't flowered yet.
