My First Garden Post

Over the course of the last 4 years our garden has grown from a little 5' x 5' square that I planted a few veggie plants and was the sole care taker to last year were we had a 40' x 50' area of garden that is now a full blown family project.  Last year was the first year we had a "serious" garden. This year we are going to have a serious garden with a blog!

I thought it would be fun to start the garden post off with a look back to last year. Despite, rabbits, moles, a woodchuck and Hurricane Irene we harvested a large bounty.

This was the harvest we had waiting for us when we returned from our vacation. 

 Sunflowers are so fun to grow! Unfortunately only 2 survived out of 20 seeds we planted, first they were attacked by the rabbits eating the leaves.  These two had enough leaves left that they were able to rebound, but we lost them in Hurricane Irene.

We had banana peppers and green peppers they were awesome!  In fact, we were eating our garden peppers well into December.  We also had tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, zucchini, squash, eggplant and basil. 

We have been planning our 2012 garden and are very excited to see what the season will bring.
