The garden is growing

Last year (near the end of summer) my daughter decided she wanted to plant a garden. We had talked about it before, but she finally decided that it was time, she had cared for some orchids and a terrarium in her room, and she was looking to expand. Needless to say that last years harvest was pitiful
Two tomatoes


and a tiny onion.

This year we did a little research and tried to plan our garden better. We planted seeds in trays, selected what should grow. And so far we are optimistic of actually bringing some plants to harvest. Currenty growning, (although not all in the same box) Pole beans, peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, lettuce greens, cucumber, squash, garlic, corn, eggplant, and assorted herbs.

Still a long way till harvest and plenty of opportunity to do something wrong, but I've got my fingers crossed.
