Garden Planted!

I was such a busy bee on saturday when David was camping. I wrote myself a long list and got most everything accomplished. Since we had the last frost last week the gardening places were PACKED out. I couldn't find a parking spot even close to the entrance. So, its official, the garden for 2011 was planted on Saturday April 9, 2011!
This year I wanted to get some hard to grow from seed plants for the garden. On the list were tomatoes, peppers and onions. Since I went to a local nursery I did have a hard time finding a few things. I had to go to Home Depot for Roma tomatoes and onions. I think I spent about $30 on veggie plants and a few more tomato cages (not pictured).
The spots where you don't see plants are the seeds. I used my seeds from last year that I kept in a nice air tight bag in the refrigerator. Let's hope they are still good, if nothing sprouts in a few weeks I'll plant some new ones. To see the official garden plant click here.
I am so glad I live in the South where I can already start planting. I should have abundant growth by June, cross your fingers! David has also installed a sprinkler watering system that I'll show you later, which is working great!
My knock out roses were also very pretty so I took a photo for you. Happy Spring!
