The bottom line is - I went kinda overboard this year, as you can see. Besides the weed barrier and cedar mulch, what you're looking at here is 6 tomato plants, 1 broccoli, two cucumbers, and 9 pepper plants. Since that's all that would effectively fit in the allotted space (and since I hate wasting plants), Meagan bought 5 pots to plant the rest of our pepper plants. I'm expecting at least 30 bushels of yield this season! ;)
The other portion of the garden is our berry patch which has gone nuts this season. Already there are hundreds of little strawberry and raspberry buds, and the raspberry plant has decided to explode like a ton of C4. After a very long winter of cold dead Provo, it is very refreshing to be outside growing things. It's a passion.
