Looks like we are going to have some Yard Babies

I wanted to get closer but didn't want to disturb mama.  I hope you can see her ...she is a Morning Dove.

Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day Everyone. 
I finally got around to getting my garden growing.  Now if I can just keep the squirrels out!
With all the sand in the backyard I decided to go with a raised bed .... and of course my earthboxes for my tomatoes and peppers.  They grow really well in the earth boxes because of the water storage space at the bottom making sure they have plenty.  Since I am starting late and have had absolutely no luck growing my own... I bought some seedlings of the plants I have no problem growing.  That would be tomatoes, peppers, squash and cucumbers.  I planted some seeds for corn, watermelon, beans and peas.  I thought I had pumpkin seeds but couldn't find them.   If I have good luck with this garden I want to build two more so I can keep crops growing and getting ripe for the whole season.  
With these smaller boxes I will be able to build a quick cold frame around them and grow longer.
