How Does Your Garden Grow?

This year we decided to put in a garden! I bought 16 strawberry plants unknowing that those plants needed a pretty good side bed to grow in. So we decided to build a raised bed out of landscape timbers. Joe and Lori's Dad built the actual raised bed and then my Dad and Mom stopped at Lowe's and got a few things ... peet and compost to add to the top soil I already had. Here we are mixing all the stuff together to make the perfect soil mixture.
Here is the finished product! We planted a grape tomato plant, 3 roma tomato plants and a celebrity tomato plant, a couple of habanero peppers, a jalapeno pepper, 16 strawberry plants, a couple of sunflowers and some cilantro!
Pretty cool, I think! I'm so proud! I couldn't have done this without all the help I had! Thanks to everyone who helped with this project! Below is a picture of the garden today ...
The strawberries are doing really well. I even have some green strawberries and one red one! YEAH!
