Jenni's Garden 2009

NaBloPoMo#29. Sharing some photos from our Spring/Summer 2009 garden at the new house. I didn't do a good job of prepping the soil, I just bought some small potted veggies and put them in the ground. So, the garden this year did ok, some plants died, and others only produced 2-3 things before blight and other things became a problem, and it just wasn't the bountiful garden that I had hoped for. It might take a few years to get the soil to be really nice. Anyways, here are the photos.
At far right was a ficus tree we took out. The stump is still there,
so I put some potted cactusand planted some succulents--April 18.
Best Boy and Momotaro tomatoes
(Momotaros died early on and replaced with Heirlooms)
Maiya helping water some peppers and cilantro
Took out some lily bulbs and put in squash and Japanese cucumbers
Aww, the first flowers are the prettiest--May 1
First zucchini, early morning harvest--May 24th
Better Boy - June 6th
Cucumbers started well, but only produced 3 cukes
Had a lot of nice zucchinis until the fusilium wilt set in
Still lots of tomatoes--July 28
