Here is the garden (both vegetable and flower gardens) as of now.
The driveway and, that nice orange fellow to the left is a stray cat that has been living in the woods. Yes, we are going to trap him next week. Yes, we are looking for a home for him. Except, I think, I may have fallen for him myself.
Mostly strawberries, but the back has been cleared and there are some recently planted turnips and lettuce.
Here there are peas, zucchini, cucumber(unseen, behind the zucchini), and, to the left, just starting to poke its little leafy green heads out of the soil, kale
Oh, heck, I can't remember. Lots of things here. Yellow squash, 2 kinds of lettuce (getting old now and getting too bitter), and sunflowers
These are actually 2 boxes. In the front: runner beans, whose blooms draw many hummingbirds. In the back, there are tomato plants. A lot of sunflowers just came up this year and if they weren't in the way, they stayed.
The flower garden, the BIG 2009 project, is going well. Getting nice and shaggy.
And here are 2 cords of stovewood, waiting for me to stack, stack, stack.
