Just a couple of quick pictures.  I took the camera outside to get a picture of the current state of the garden.  As I went out I spotted the rose plant near the front door.  So I thought I’d try to take one of those “closeup” pictures.  I’m not sure the focus is right.

My first attempt at a flower closeup

After a couple of tries in the front I went around back to get the garden.  I even got the gardener as a bonus!

Gardener and Her Garden

Linda tends her garden

Since this picture was taken, the cages have gone around the tomato plants to keep them from falling over.  It’s looking pretty good!

Last weekend while Kieran and I were camping with the Boy Scouts (more on that later), Linda finished getting the garden beds loaded with dirt and planted.  Things are slowly starting to take root.  I’m not certain that all of the plants are going to survive the transplanting.  I think some of them may have gotten too big in the house.  We’ll have to wait and see.

Over the last week we’ve experimented with how to layout the soaker hose for maximum water coverage.  I’m still not sure we have it right, but we keep working on it.

You know what the best part of the garden is?  Hearing Linda squee when she sees a new plant emerging from the dirt or a blossom appearing.  That makes the whole project worth it.
