Garden Plans

 Here is how our seedlings are doing.  They are getting so big!  Wow what a mom thing to say huh?  I'm really should be replanting these suckers.  Next year I will definitely be using cups or something instead of the little thingies they are in now.  Most of what you see are bean plants and pumpkins.  Hopefully the neighborhood cats don't eat all the beans up again this year.  I mean really last year to look out into our fenced in garden and see a big 'ole cat eating the green bean plants was just too crazy. 
This is the state of our garden boxes.  We still haven't been able to get dirt to fill them although we have hope for this weekend.  Photo Dude and I have a great place near us that has composted mulch and that is what we will be filling quite a bit of these boxes with.  Our hope is to till up the soil that is there, fill in more dirt and then top with mulch.  The dirt in this section of the yard seems very good so we are going to just use what we've got instead of paying a lot of money for new dirt.
     Our thoughts for next year are much bigger.  Ya' see that strip of yard between the fences and the shed?  Our thoughts are to till up all of that for a huge in ground garden.  Then we will plant something like arborvitae to block the view from the street and cut down on the neighborhood kids cutting through our side yard.  The photo to the left is taken from Google Earth and is of our house with the plans for next year colored in.  So what do you think?
