The Victory Garden...

My husband was very busy this weekend building his raised beds for the garden and planting lots of plants. He put in pole beans (green beans), peas, carrots, turnips, basil, tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini and mesclun lettuce. I'm not sure what else he planted. Our strawberries are growing and the herbs are looking good, too. The garlic will be ready towards the end of summer. He is going to plant some potatoes, as well. I can't wait to eat this stuff! The food tastes so good when you can go outside and pick it and then cook it right then.


He built the picket fence to keep the puppy out (BTW, she turns 1 on June 1st). The little house in the back is a play house that the first owners used for storage. We are going to paint the fence later on in the summer. I think he did a great job.In other news, my brother got remarried yesterday. My dad sent me some pictures and he looks really happy. He deserves it! I'll meet my new sister-in-law towards the end of June. He told me "they just love hanging out together." Imagine that. :)
