Garden is in!

It's been raining here, but we still managed to build and plant the garden!
I've read the you can use newspaper as weed mats, so gave it a try.  I just lined the bottom of the garden with it and added top soil, then garden soil.  Hopefully it works!  We'll see :)  I probably should have put more layers of it down... I just used what we had.

Finished getting it ready in the dark.  The dogs had a lot of fun running through it... eek! Just what I feared.

I planted the garden this morning, and we added a little fence... hoping to keep the dogs out.  We have mostly tomatoes, jalapenos, and bell peppers planted (Hubby was thinking salsa).  It's a bit over crowded right now, but I'll hopefully be transplanting some of the plants next week.  I didn't have room to plant the seeds we picked out... still brain storming on that :)

  1. Your garden is lovely. If the grass starts to come through, just add mulch to choke it out and hold in water. I know you will harvest a bounty. Homegrown salsa sounds great!

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
