I'm going to try yet again to get back into this blogging thing.  I'm thrilled to be able to garden for the first time in about 10 years!  
First we have 2 tomato plants that I'll be growing in a container.  One is a cherry tomato, the other a yellow heirloom.  I hope they do well.   

Here is the garden.  Nothing planted yet, hopefully going to get everything in this weekend, provided it stops raining long enough!  I would have liked to have had the soil prepared longer (it has only been a little over a week) but it was just too wet.  So it may not turn out this year, but it's worth a shot.  I'm going to be planting peas, rainbow carrots, cucumbers, lots of mesclun mix, rainbow swiss chard, potatoes, basil and parsley.  I'm certainly a bunny slave since most of this is for the bunnies!  I don't even really like swiss chard or parsley.  To the side of the house I'll be planting pumpkins and watermelons.  I hope they turn out, I've never tried growing watermelon before.  If anyone has any tips I'm all ears,   
I've started some seeds indoors, although I didn't get time to get them going as early as I would have liked.  I think it will still be okay since I wouldn't want to plant these outside yet since there is still a slight chance of frost/snow.  We've had it all the way to June I think! I've got pumpkins, watermelons and heirloom lemon cucumbers.  I'm really excited about the lemon cucumbers, I hope they grow!

I'll keep posting pictures as I go along.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading
