Our 2012 Garden: The Beginnings

Our 2012 garden is well on its way of a very productive season.  

Joel already tilled, fertilized, and planted some of the cold crops: peas, lettuce, carrots, broccoli, radish, spinach, and potatoes.  
And this weekend we'll be putting in the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and sweet potatoes.
Then Joel will work on the corn and green beans.
I wanted to post some of the early pictures, so we can share the beginnings of our 2012 garden with you guys.

Here's our bare garden back in March (when my family was in town).  Our grapevine was still "dormant".

Oh, and here's the before and after views of the grapevine.


Lettuce (and peas and carrots... oh my!)


... and broccoli

So... I'll keep everyone updated on how our garden progresses.  

We've already enjoyed lots of lettuce, radishes, and spinach (which is already all gone!).

We're so thankful that God's blessed us with good weather, good soil, and a hard working gardener (aka. Joel) :)

  1. looks great! we have a lot planted already, too. i love the idea of using fence panels for the peas!

  2. That looks great! We still haven't gotten a garden out yet, and I'm really hoping we get to this year. Need to get busy on that asap! :)

    And I love your blog design, I'm not sure if I've not seen it before or jsut haven't paid attention. haha.


  3. Wow, it looks amazing. They haven't put the gardens in up here yet. It's usually too early before Memorial day. I don't have my own garden, so will live vicariously through yours.

    Enjoy all that delish fresh produce!

  4. Looks great! Good job, Joel! Can't wait to plant our green beans. This our 1st yr. so we're starting out with baby steps! :)
