This is the 4th year for our backyard garden - it gets bigger and better every year. I have half a mind to rent a tiller and dig up a big chunk so we can really go big next year.
Might have to anyways, what with rising food prices and all. But I digress, sort of.
Plants of all sorts coming up randomly here and there! Sunflowers, borage, snapdragons, feverfew, cosmos, potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins (I think), and squash! IT'S A FREE FOR ALL!
Ahem. Sorry, got a bit carried away for a minute. These things happen when you have a sloppy compost pile. I've threatened to leave a bit of the garden open next year just to see what comes up. But back to the here and now, especially the squash plants.
And guess what - they tasted just like zucchinis. We've eaten them twice, and they were just wonderful. Michael made stuffed zucchini the other day, and tonight we had zucchini parmigiana. NOM NOM NOM
The weather has been decent, I'm ready for summer reading to be over, and I only work 10 days in September.
I suppose I can't complain too much.

You should! The key is to pick something easy that grows well where you live for your first attempt. And things are never the same two years in a row. Last year our cauliflower was PERFECT, and this year it looked totally mutant.
Potatoes are pretty easy...

I would love to start my own garden but I can't decide what I would like to grow. Yours is looking great. And what a cute doggy!
