This summer I decided that I wanted a small garden. It started out being a container garden, but as the plants started growing I knew they had to be repotted, so in the ground they went. My dad put up a dog pen to keep the deer and rabbits away from my precious plants. I'm being faithful about watering them in the morning and in the evening to combat this raging heat. Hopefully, I'll get to reap this harvest soon. The economy sure isn't getting better, so having a garden just makes sense.
In my garden are Celebrity tomatoes; Roma tomatoes; Red, Yellow, and Green Bell Peppers; Zucchini; Squash; and Cucumbers. I also have a mini herb garden in the house - oregano, basil, and flat-leaf parsley.
