Our garden

Matt and I started our first garden this year. Some things took, some didn't. We have a row of strawberries (from my parents), blackberries & raspberries (from Matt's parents), rhubarb, Roma & 'regular' tomatoes, green bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, okra, potatoes, one very weak gourd vine, and a surprise corn stalk! We will be *very* lucky if we get one good vegetable/fruit from each plant, but we can't say we didn't try! :o)

Some variety of squash/zucchini growing from the compost pile!
The corn stalk -- ALSO growing from the compost pile!
Our big yellow squash plant!
One half our garden - growing on the wire in the back are the blackberries

You two are doing such a nice job of gardening. This looks awesome, especially for your first year there!

We got stuff growing from our compost pile too. I envy your blackberries. I'm hoping to plant some kind of berry this fall - but I need to figure out what will work in our shady city backyard.
