Vegetable Garden

Yesterday our landscapers brought in our vegetable garden box. They also laid the DG (decomposed granite) and attached the flower bed sprinklers.

This morning Chad and I purchased fruit and vegetable plants and seeds. The timing was right so we decided to plant them in the garden box today as well. This year is the test year to see which crops do well in our yard and which ones are a flop.

Here's a list of what we planted:

Beefsteak Tomatoes
Grape Tomatoes
Early Girl Tomatoes
Roma Tomatoes
Silver Queen Sweet Corn
Flame Seedless Grape Vine
Birdhouse Gourds
Burpless Cucumbers
Red Bell Sweet Peppers
Green Zucchini Squash
Charleston Gray Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Sequoia Strawberries
Overbearing Strawberries
Red Cored Chantenay Carrots
Sweet Spanish Yellow Utah Jumbo Onions
Chives
Sweet Basil
Cilantro
In the background of the photo you'll see the two Washington Navel Orange trees in pots
