Urban Gardner : Trois

The garden has grown just a bit since my last update. It has morphed from urban container gardening to backyard square foot gardening. A friend of mine recently bought a new house (of which I am tres jealous) that already had raised bed gardens in the back. Being a bachelor, guess who was allowed to "play in the dirt?"
The back bed features several types of tomatoes. The middle bed is all types of peppers: bell, jalapeno, poblano, & pimento. The front bed is lots of herbs!

The side bed is home to yellow squash and zucchini. I can't wait to see what bounty we yield!

Pete always loves when mom works in the garden. We get to run to the garden, stop by an insurance office on the way that has doggie treats set outside with a sign saying "for our furry friends." Then he gets to roll and play in the fluffy grass in the fenced in backyard! Oh a dog's life!
