Garden update 2014

Here are some updated pics of our garden. Most of the plants are in, I still have some more basil to go in this weekend some place.....I'd say about 75% of the garden this year is from recycled items :) For that, I can say I'm proud. Next year, I'll be adding soaker hoses, & hopefully a good drain/water system for the tomato garden...since its thrived there, I'm not moving it!

 Here are my first 2 tomatoes :)
 mixture of peppers
 peppers & moonflowers (later I moved my basil & oregano pot & placed inside the circle so they could get watered)
 tomato garden
 first strawberry from last year's planting :)
 here was the tomato garden when we first started it

 June bearing strawberries planted last year (I thought they were poison ivy at first!)
 pepper blocks
 bearded dragon iris' in the front yard
 #2 & 3 tomato of the year

 here's the tomato garden after it was nearly completed
 pepper bed
 a nice little slimy visitor :)
 the cucumbers I planted, then transplanted so there were 2 per pot.
 Pole of the pots has a cucumber because of an odd count
 garlic & asparagus
So far, that's it!

2014 Garden, nearly there!

Well, here's more of my garden :)
 Here's my nearly complete front garden bed.
 One of my tomato beds :) the 3 plants in the back, I transferred up to the front, so water dripping off the house didn't upset them

 Part of my jalapeno's
 Cucumbers, there is 4 per pot, but I'm transferring 2 to another pot so they have root space. Currently, there are 7 cucumbers sprouted (& 7 peas).

 My peas :)

 My bulbs
 My chives, I made some macrame pot holders last night, & today I  made the other one :)

 This is what I did with my strawberries that'll bloom next year.
