    Hello everyone! I havent been here for a while.Been very busy with the kids and getting the yard ready for planting. I just put in two raised beds in the backyard about 2-3 weeks ago. I transplanted broccoli into 1 of them. We will see if they survive. In the other box I have chamomile, radishes,carrots,beets,and possibly something else sprouting. My lettace mix is also sprouting. I just need the weather to stay warm to plant the rest of my seeds. Waiting for the last frost date is like waiting for the bell to ring at 3 for school. I can't wait to see what i can grow this year!

    My tomatoes didn't do well this year. I put them in a different garden and the soil wasn't good for them. My peppers are looking good though. There almost ready to pick. I want to learn how to grow potatoes.

    My garden only contains tomatoes, bell peppers, and potatoes. The potatoes are looking good but the tomatoes and bell peppers are starting to wind down for the year.
