Vegetable Garden

One of the things Morgan and I loved about our house when we first rented it was the beautiful backyard. And one nice thing about the backyard are the three large garden plats. Last year, we moved into the house to late in the season to take advantage of the garden area. Plus with studying for the bar exam and having morning sickness, everything we planted elsewhere dried up and died pretty quickly.

The garden plats.
This year, Morgan and I were determined to use the garden and backyard to its full potential. One of the garden plats has raspberry bushes in it, and the other two were empty. So we headed off to the nursery to figure out what we wanted to grow. Once there we decided on a variety of different vegetables and herbs.

Henry loved being outside and watching Morgan prepare the garden.
So we're growing green peppers, onions, cabbage, romaine lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, basil, and cilantro. I have zero experience growing vegetables so hopefully some of the plants will yield something. But I don't have a very good track record for keeping plants alive, so we will see!
