Here's the before picture
The area cleared out of grass
The kids helped out, too!
We put down a frame and black weed tarp (which we later learned was a mistake and pulled it up)
And here's the finished product. Too bad the file got corrupted when my computer crashed. But you can see the gates that the tomato plants go in. We also planted spinach, mixed greens, green leaf lettuce, green onions, basil, baby carrots, oregano, bell peppers, jalapenos. Thanks Grant and kids for the best Mother's Day present, ever! Now lets see if we can keep it up! Grant and the kids are in charge of watering it, and I'm in charge of weeding it. We have already learned (10 months later) that some veggies didn't turn out or aren't worth the effort. We've removed all the lettuces and the carrots and have planted strawberries, snap peas, canteloupe, cucumbers. Still waiting for them to start producing. It's definitely a learning experience, but the one thing that works without fail are the tomatoes! So now I've just got to figure out a way to keep them coming all year round!
