Family Garden Year One

Just before Allison arrived we started our first family garden. My Uncle Sam visited and provided a wealth of knowledge on how to start. We decided on a raised garden and made the box out of wood from my brothers decommissioned pool deck. We mixed in compost from the local recycling center with the lawn & soil inside the box and then started planting.

Alex Watering the Tomatoes on Planting Day

From left to right we planted basil, pumpkins, red hot chili peppers, green peppers, and 4 rows of tomatoes. More pics of the first day are here.

Three weeks later

While I was out taking pictures I noticed Tom hiding in the woods. I threw together this short video slide show in a few minutes with iPhoto.
