My adventures in a Zone 9 Southern California garden.

The garden is finally planted
It doesn't look like much when you start, does it? A big blank canvas with tiny little sprouts here and there. In our case, it is even a little more bleak with all of our weed paper down. But when I look at this, I can see what is coming! The three tomato cages will be positively bursting with tomatoes by July, the bean arch and the teepee will be covered with vines by the first of May, the sunflower house and the back left wall will have 7 or 8 foot tall sunflowers growing, and the strawberry patch will be loaded with blooms and berries. I love watching the garden grow and I'll post pictures of it as it changes over the next few months.
I am a mom and gardener in Southern California who loves to plant new things to grow and eat. My family loves to play and eat off the vine in the garden so we are totally organic. We really enjoy the beauty given to us from God!
