Yard and Garden update
The top picture is of part of our garden. You can see carrots, onions and some small tomato plants that I planted late that randomly grew in my parents yard. There is also a flower in there and if you look to the right you can see a small potato starting, which of course will die before we can ever enjoy it. The next picture is our strawberry patch and we get about 8 delicious strawberries from it every other day. If you look closely you can also see some pots in the ground where I am getting some starts to send over to my parents house so they can enjoy the fruit of these wonderful plants. The third picture down is a side shot of our two big tomato plants which are out of control and have given us about 18 huge meaty tomatoes this year. We made fresh salsa and guacamole with them and eaten them plain or with other foods. The next two pictures are of Alexis and I unloading dirt we got from a lady I met on craigslist.org. We were looking for dirt and she said if we shoveled it and loaded it up we could have it so took two loads and dispersed it around our yard to even things out and to raise the dirt up near our house.
