Today we finally planted the garden. We planted just a little later than usual cause of the project of the chicken coop, the rainy cold weather, and because the new tiller my parents got decided to be a lemon of a tiller and not work. So we had to wait another week for another tiller to come. I have come to really enjoy having a garden. My parents have had a garden for years but I haven't appreciated it like I have over the past couple years. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to grow our own fruit and vegetables.

We planted sage, cilantro, Italian leaf parsley, and basil
Cosmo thought the water hose was fun
Here we planted tomatillos, jalapenos, red and green bell peppers, pablanos, and anaheim peppers
We planted a lot of tomatoes, beef, jet star and cherry tomatoes
We planted 3 different types of cucumbers, I am excited about the one that we can make pickles with

We planted BLUE potatoes! I have never seen one before and I have no idea where my Dad got these from. We also planted golden potatoes.

Cleaning up to make the garden look nice
All done. The sunlight in this picture is a nice touch
We also planted, yellow beans, carrots, beets, chard, lettuce, onions, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. And there is also a peach tree that is starting to come up in the garden too, it is no bigger than one of the cucumber plants. It will be nice to get fresh peaches one day. I am grateful my parents are able to have a large garden. It has been a blessing and a joy to have in our lives.
