What an incredibly exciting day.  Hannah's eight grade promotion in the morning.  Sarah's graduation in the evening.  Stacey and Wyatt here to visit. We haven't seen Stacey for years and this is the first time we got to meet Wyatt.  It turned out to be a great visit.  Wyatt bonded with his grandpa immediately.

Mary, Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow......

My motivation to have a great garden this year 

Scrawny little beginning

Looking good!

The first two garden beds, built last year.

Whats that I spy, a brand new third bed this year. Please don't notice the nasty lattice. I can't keep it clean with the water hose splashing it all the time.  

Very hard to tell from this picture but there are nine okra plants popping through the soil.  

First section of corn. We are staggering the plantings so we won't be bombarded all at once.  

Cucumber plants beginning to grow up my redneck trellis. Two more tomato plants here and swiss chard just beginning to pop through the soil. 

Older picture, beginning of some great tomatoes.  

These are the same tomatoes.  Will have to anchor the trellis a bit better soon.

These pictures do not do the garden justice.  I have a section of green beans just popping up and two eggplants as well.
