Mission Accomplished

Today was a good day. We got a late start in the garden because of an after Church activity. By the time we had some lunch and got home it was already three o'clock. But in the last 4 hours, we've managed to clean up last years earth boxes and buckets and plant a good number of bell pepper, jalapeno peppers, habaneros, Ghost peppers and even a poblano. We also planted some summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, cantaloupe and green beans. I even had time to plant my black currant plants just as I had hoped. Brittan was a huge help and while I was watering everything in, she put the netting over our strawberry bed. As an aside, we are beginning to get a very nice number of strawberries. I didn't expect this many our first year. We're beginning to get some blossoms on our golden raspberries, too. Gotta love it.

We still have quite a bit to plant, but by this time next weekend, we should be done. I love this time of year.
