My New Adventure

I've been saying I want a garden for a couple years now.  I finally got my wish!  It isn't big, but it's a garden and it's mine!  The boys eat tomatoes like they're candy, so I knew I wanted a few tomato plants.  Then I wanted to be able to reduce my grocery bill by cutting back on the amount of produce needed.  If I'm lucky, I'll figure out how to can this summer too.  **fingers crossed**.

Here's what I planted (and hopefully will give me a yield before I accidentally kill it...)
4 tomato plants (early girl, jetsetter, big beef, and sweet 100)
3 bell peppers (1 red beauty, 1 green bell boy and 1 blue jay - a novelty item =) )
watermelon (sugar baby)
sweet Italian peppers
2 thymes (1 orange thyme and 1 lemon thyme)
flat leaf parsley
curly parsley
apple mint

Here is everything on 6/22.  I know it seems late, but it has finally just gotten warm, so really it's okay.  Also, you'll notice my $300 kennel that was supposed to keep the dog inside.  It didn't work out that way, so now it's going to keep the deer out of my garden.
