A Peek in the Garden

I've posted a few other pictures over the summer of our garden. We just built our veggie bed in May. We saw the kit on a Home Depot commerical, and decided to build our own. We planted tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, beans, a cucumber, and sunflowers

Day 1
2 weeks in (6/6/12)

2 months (7/29)
 You can tall that everything has suddenly grown. We finally got rain within the last two weeks. Everything has taken out. The sunflowers have spiked up, the tomatoes have flourished, and the cucumber is everywhere. I am enjoying the beans already. I ended up digging out the basil, because it wasn't getting the sun underneath the beans and cucumbers.

My favorite zinnias, which I started from seeds this year. 

I can't wait to see the garden ripen and all the sunflowers open. I'm looking forward to being home this year and enjoy everything!


  1. The flowers are so pretty!
    I would love to do something like this.
    We actually have a community garden in our neighborhood with raised beds, but just haven't committed yet!

  2. I love pics of flowers. Very pretty.
