The garlic garden has garlic growing now.
The lasagna garden (which is now raised and has walking blocks around it) has lettuces growing in it, I'll add more lettuce, green onions, beets, turnips, radishes, some basil, dill and cilantro. As things go to seed, I'll plant salad things again.
The herb garden will have as many different herbs I can fit into it, more perennials than annuals, maybe a few edible flowers like nasturtiums (sp?).
The vegetable garden (the biggest one) will have dozens of tomatoes and peppers (san marzano, cherry, heirloom slicers)(green, red, and pablano), corn, peas, kohlerabi (sp?), eggplant and whatever else I can fit in it.
I won't have pictures of the veggies until at least a month here.

When I lived in the country the bunnies and the deer were annoying. The real problem was the danged moose. Do you know how big their feet are? Huge. Stupid critter didn't seem to eat anything, just walked around and trampled stuff. From the footprints it looked like it had been dancing in the herb garden.

So here is what the garden looked like this morning.

This is what it looks like this afternoon.

I cheated a little by setting out some plants from the nursery, I will plant carrots, beets, peas, & beans from seed tomorrow. Also potatoes.

I also planted the herb garden which I did not take pictures of, I transplanted some of the perennial herbs from another location and added some new ones and some annuals.

I am so beat, I don't feel like cooking *gasp*. Hockey game is on so not likely going out........hmmmmm......what to do???

Taxlady, yes those moose are huge! I don't really live in the country, just on the edge of our little town and still in the city limits, but we have about five deer that frequent the area.

Believe it or not when I lived right in town, about 18 years ago, we had an errant moose that spent the day on the high school campus and in a few backyards. I lived 1/2 block from the school and saw the critter with my own eyes! So no one can make me believe that moose are never found below the 49th parallel! Lol!

Bunny,The veg patches look good as does your lawn,I love feeling knackered after gardening I really am getting to be an old fart I just sit on the bench and look at the garden till I can hobble in the shed and get a beer. I used to love a whisky and a cuban cigar on a warm summers evening last year. Ive run out of cigars and I'm not allowed whisky
