More garden pictures

This is the fence and gate we put up the other day. So far the dogs have not been in there. We hope they stay out! I've built up mounds or mounded beds for each of the types of squash, which is the way I learned to plant them. I put in some very short rows of things we wanted to try, like the pinto beans.

Pulling rocks back out of the dog's water dish after she put a lot in. However, she still did not agree with me the dogs might not like the taste of water with lots of rocks.

Clowning around by the gate

A few more pictures of our garden and Esme bopping around the yard. We put in another wave of seeds into the garden today. There was already sweet corn, green beans, zucchini and carrots planted. Today, I added pinto and lima beans, spinach, radishes, 'Indian' multicolored dent corn, summer squash, blue jarrahdale squash, turk's turban squash, pumpkins and cucumbers. Mark put in a storebought tomato and ornamental gourds. We have LOTS of seedling tomatoes and peppers started - and they will go in with more corn in a few weeks. A few of the things we put in were just to see what they would do :)

coffee and knitting, sitting on the porch waiting for dinner to be ready.

Mark made an excellent little pizza for each of us :) It was very good!

I am excited to hear more about how the garden grows!! I bet Esme is going to love this whole process.
