Oh No...I Have Become My Mother!

If you don't understand my blog title please visit my mother's blog @ for clarity. I have taken pictures of my garden and some of the fruits of our labor so that my mom can see what our garden looks like. I enlisted Charles to build me some garden boxes that had some architectural detail. I found a couple pictures online and showed them to him. He thought okay no problem and we were off to Lowes to purchase some wood. What he didn't realize is that it would take him two weekends to build my boxes. I guess I should say "Thank You!" everyday, but wouldn't you agree that they turned out great? Then I gently informed him that I would actually like two more 4x4 beds for next year. Oh well just another project to add to the list. Hope you enjoy!

One more time...same bed.

Yellow Squash (okay so 7 squash plants may be overdoing it just a little)

Look at all of the baby yellow squash.

Zucchini (they were planted later than the squash, but they should catch up soon)

Hi Amanda, how's it going? I'm really impressed with your garden! Mine is far from picture worthy,however each year I've tried a garden I've become more dedicated, so I'm almost to the point where I'll admit it takes a lot more work than I have thus far been willing to put into it. Anyway, yours looks good, and those puppies are CUTE!
