It's Garden Time

The sun is out. There is afternoon rain. It must finally be spring. So, we have been working on our garden. We are very glad the people who lived here before created a very nice garden space with four grow boxes and automatic sprinkler system. 
We have pulled all the weeds. 

We added some IFA garden soil. 
We planted some peas, carrots, green onions, and bush beans from seeds. 
And things are starting to grow. 
The peas line the edges of the box so they can grow up the fence. The carrots are the bright green patch in the sunny spot. The green sprout at the bottom of the picture is a bush bean plant. 
A close up shot of the carrots. Still in the sunny spot. 
These tube pots are on the hill. They have drip lines in each one. This is where we put the zucchini, yellow and green. 
This is the cucumber. 
These are the tomatoes. 
These are the peppers that still need to be planted. Jalapeño, green bell, and Anaheim peppers. We like to make jalapeño jelly, stuffed bell pepper, and salsa. 

We are excited to watch it grow!

Awesome!! Someday I hope to have a garden; even a small herb one would be nice. I think I will really enjoy gardening.

I love your garden and how nice to have everything on its own drip!
