Growing Vegetables

Jeff looked at me yesterday and said, "Do you want to put in a vegetable garden?"
It was like he forgot I was my Grandma Kienow's granddaughter and Uncle Bob's niece..."YES!!!"
Our only problem was measuring our enthusiasm against our time and effort...
The Stats:
2-2x8 green treated 16 footers
Assorted screws, saws, drills, and workbenches
15 40-lb bags of topsoil (it was red, not black, but still topsoil)
6 wheelbarrow of composted dirt from our backyard pile
3 wheelbarrows of clay (regular dirt down here)
2 Celebrity Tomatoes
2 Better Boy Tomatoes
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1 Jalepenos Plant (I am sensing salsa...)
1 Eggplant
Green beans from seed
Green leafy lettuce from seed
Basil from seed
Oregano from seed
Cilantro from seed
Rosemary from seed

And I'm so happy!

Jeff and I definitely stopped and smelled the gardenias on the way in after our crazy day. I wish I could bottle them up and sniff year round. (Wait, maybe that's already been done in a perfume. If anyone has suggestions, I'll take them.)
