the garden

Yesterday we finally got around to getting the garden going...
we started with tomatos
Jon went and got some more bricks for the big garden (which you can sorta see behind the tree on the right.) We still need 2 more layers and we need to order the dirt hopefully we'll have it all done by next weekend so we can start planting. I know it's a little but hopefully we'll get something to grow. I took a class last fall on gardening in the desert and they told me that lettuce, peppers, onions, black eyed peas, jicama, eggplant, sweet potatoes and tomatoes are good hot summer veggies. We wont be planting all of them but the kids sure are excited!
We also started a little herb garden which will move out side once they sprout.
