How does your garden grow?

We have officially started our garden for this year. :-) Yea! We've had asparagus since last year. It grew this year and we had some stalks but they are still tiny. They flowered so we cut them back today while we were out working on the garden. We added soil to our garden, as it is a raised bed and needed more. We then put in several plants that we bought yesterday: cantaloupe, orange/yellow/red bell peppers, sweet basil, and tomatoes. We planted seeds for the following: corn, bush beans, peas, pumpkins and cucumber. We have one cherry tomato plant and that went in a clay pot on the deck. Our compost pile seems to be coming along nicely too. :-)

Hopefully we will be enjoying the fruits...and veggies....of our labor soon.

I am so jealous. We can't grow anything but dirt here. At least I am way out east and surrounded by a few farms. That helps get my fix of farm fresh.
