In the garden
Here's the planted vegetable garden! I have five tomato plants (grape tomatoes, Big Boy, Brandywine, Celebrity, and Jet Star), four bell peppers, three cucumbers, a jalapeno, a banana pepper, and some zucchini and carrot seeds. The carrots were Evan's idea and he planted them himself with great excitement. They're his Chanberries. :)
We used the same irrigation system kit as last year (Drip Irrigation for Dummies - seriously), but with different hoses and a different layout. Last year "drip" was the operative word and it wasn't very effective, but now it's more like a sprinkler and the plants are already thriving. Evan also found a timed watering system on clearance, so we can't forget to water. I have high hopes for a good crop!
Also, a mere week after the first bloom, my Knock Out rose bush has exploded!
