I give you...the vegetable garden.

At last, the vegetable garden is done. I can sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labor. Ooookay, not really. The vegetable garden is only beginning and I still have plenty of work to do before I get any fruits. But, the plants are all outside, the fence is up and secure, and the mulch is spread.

I think some before-and-after pictures are in order. So without further ado, here are before pictures of the front of the house (from last summer):

And here's what it looks like today:

Here is a view of the front yard from the sunroom (again from last summer):

And today:
I have lots of peas, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and herbs planted. I also planted a few melon plants and even some habaneros and jalapenos (for Mark). I've left space for more--the farmers' market and the nurseries are bursting with vegetable plants, so if I see anything cool in the next couple of weeks, I'll be able to put those in as well.
So now I just wait, weed, and water. And hope everything grows!
