When Mom and Dad were here last month they tilled the garden for me and even started planting. Tilling that garden is no small chore, let me tell you, that dirt is like cement. In fact they ended up breaking the head of a shovel right in half! Thanks to their efforts, and some follow up work on my part, the garden is now well on its way. Here are some pictures, taken last Saturday:
Tomatoes, 3 varieties
Basil plant-lets and basil seeds
These are some onion-types that Luca's Uncle gave us...
I planted flowers all around the border of the garden
The artichokes are doing great this year, everyone in Verduno wants some!
8 zucchini plants and a row of corn. This picture doesn't do them justice.
A random poppy plant that sprouted from seeds my Mom gave me
You can't really tell from this picture, but these are beans (green and purple)
Lettuce that's been replanted twice: grow already!
