My Garden--BEFORE

So, I am soooo very happy that warmer weather is finally here! It is now time to get outside and work in the garden! These are pictures of my yard before any planting has been done this year! I am hoping to take pictures as the garden progresses!

This is the first part of the garden where I currently have a rhubarb plant.

Overhead look at rhubarb plant (needs water!)

Overhead view of the first part of the garden.
This first part is where I am planning on planting cucumbers and different types of peppers!

This is the second part of the garden!

Overhead look at the second part (ugh! my shadow!)
In this area I am planning on planting greenbeans (bush beans and polebeans)

This is the third part of the garden!
I am planning on planting tomatoes here! Many, many, many varieties!
oh, and onions all around!

This is still the third part, but this shows the recently added raised garden bed!

In here i am planning on planting many hers, lettuce, and onions




this is the fourth part of the garden (overhead long view)
There are many perennials planted here!
sometimes, i fill empty areas with veggies, such as a tomato plant or pepper plant!

The next couple pictures are head-on segments of the fourth part!

In this area again, many perennials are planted here along with beautiful rose bushes

This is what the yard is like so far...in addition to these areas there are geraniums planted in the front of the house (pics to come) and many pots. I want to try veggies in large pots, so we will see what will happen!
