Before and After....

A few weeks ago....


The Horror! (I think that some of those dangling tomatoes could pass as sun dried).

Just before the Texas Trip....


Our weekend goal is that once we fill up the green waste bin - we're donezo. I'm pretty sure just cleaning out the veggie bed filled that sucker at least halfway.

Add a little of this....


I had to include a pic of my new fave tool - the box cutter. Who knew they made cute ones?

Organize the new recruits....


Two cherry & one rainbow tomato, jewel toned chard, buttery lettuces, tiny cucumbers, cilantro, pattypan and our first tomatillo.

Voila........


Yeah, feels pretty darn good. Hope that Spring kissed your weekend, too. xo

Luscious looking. I always love the look of freshly turned earth in a garden. That, and ripe veggies, of course!

Look at all of that sun. Yum. The garden looks great and it sounds like you're going to have a tasty summer!

Beautiful! Making me restless-another 6 weeks to last frost here-and my seed plants are already high.
Did you make those wickets, or purchase them somewhere? ~lmc

Been a might rainy around my area. I still live in awe of those who grow green things so beautifully. Your garden looks great!

Cilantro, you are a California girl! It was unbelievably hot in SD today at 92 degrees. A scorcher! Glad your weekend was beautiful.

I love home grown tomatoes! We haven't had a garden the last few years but usually end up with plenty from neighbors.

Inspiring! Love the before and after of your garden.

Way to go! Isn't it wonderful when you can actually see the results of your work?!

We had the best of intentions for a vegetable garden this year, but all Michael's traveling has interfered with our plans. Thank goodness for the farmers market.

Think of me while you're enjoying your juicy, homegrown tomatoes this summer!
