HA! Who's got Guns-n-Roses stuck in their head now?!
Happy to oblige...
If you've never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden.
~ Robert Brault
and this, too!
All of it. The entire garden this year. In such a short time it has already gone so far beyond what I imagined it could be!
Everything is just growing like crazy!
And we are starting to harvest all kinds of goodness!
The photos I took yesterday really tell the story fine on their own. There is not much I can add. I am just very pleased with our progress so far. For two people who have only been gardening a few years, and the last couple years we just had our one teeny little plot, the fact that we have not only been able to keep EIGHT raised beds plus numerous pots not only alive but thriving it such an amazing feeling of accomplishment!
It is usually hot as hell out there, and the weeding and tending can be back spasm-inducing work, but it is oh so worth it! All the sweat, all the dirt, all the terrible tan lines....all worth it!!!

We enjoyed some last night and we will have more tonight!
(now that I am really viewing the photos I am realizing how phallic these look! Oh my!)
See what I mean?! ;-)
Little baby bell peppers just getting their start!
Sweet banana peppers!
These little guys will become Big Boy tomatoes later this summer!
Little now...soon to be Big Boy!
Just as a recap, we've got 8 wildly thriving tomato plants (different varieties), 8 pepper plants (different varieties, three different types of cucumber all growing like crazy, two huge zucchini plants, five string bean plants making beans all over the place, an acorn squash plant and spaghetti squash plant that share the same bed and have gotten so big I don't know where one ends and the other begins and there are little baby squash galore in there, two types of radish, carrots, eggplant, and loads of herbs!!!
