I have full charge of my herbs, planted in pots on our porch, while Rodney has full charge of his garden. I call it "Rodney's Garden" because of the stage of life we're in. It's been difficult to work for long periods down in the garden. Between my baby who still takes two naps a day and the everyday chores that fill my days, Rodney has spent the majority of time planting, weeding, tilling and watering the garden.
The fence for our garden has only successfully been able to keep out our 3 year old, who would much rather have free reign to dig and stomp over baby vegetables.
I took these pictures so long ago, it feels silly to post them as our garden has changed significantly in the last 4 weeks. So I'll let you get a feel for the size of our garden and will plan to take some new pictures soon. We've harvested red potatoes, radishes and our first two cucumbers. Unfortunately, the deer found our red beets and lettuces tasty.They have also sampled our peas, corn and beans as well. So between the voles and deer, it's been a challenging first garden year! But the tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, asparagus, rhubarb, and vine plants seem to be doing well!
