Transplants

Everything is transplanted in the garden now. The wire on top of the dirt is to keep the cats from using it as a litter box. Everything except the one big tomato plant, the eggplant, and the lavender was grown at home from seed.

The rhubarb is also doing quite well. I had some trouble when I first transplanted it, but I think there may have been air pockets in the soil, and it didn't receive sufficient water. The plant sent up 5-6 flower stalks, and after I cut those down to the base, it took off like crazy. Maybe I'll have pie this year after all!

Raised Bed Garden Finished

I finished my raised bed garden today. It looks more like an engineering project than an beautiful organic garden, but I bet the food tastes the same. My seedlings are all grown up too. I'll post some photos of them later this week.
