green thumb.







I am late on the garden planting, but our backyard was dreadful until about a month ago. It went a very long year with little to no maintenance and needed some major TLC before anything could survive back there. I also planted some potted plants on my deck and have to thank my neighbor Tasha for letting me borrow some of her planters to use, I promise i'll give them back when the plants die :)And our neighbors, behind us, have a massive fig tree that has come through the fence, and I will be picking those when they are ripe, but here are a few pictures of our garden. in seed: broccoli, green beans, carrots & spinach plus some mini-planters of herbs; in plant: mellons, bell peppers (all colors), red chile pepper, zucchini squash, yellow squash, heirloom tomatoes 2 varieties) patio tomatoes, lots of strawberries. I've heard of the birds destroying the fruit, but thanks to our lovely dog Buddha, the birds are terrified to be in our yard. Here are some photos of "Garden of Content(e)".....

I love it all! If you have an over-abundance of figs I would love to take some off your hands. And I love the puppy looking ready to chase birds...or kids...or whoever will play!
