The approach to the garden. The hoses on the ground are soaker hoses I haven't gotten around to stowing away.

We got the expansion added to the container garden. We've even added a 4 blackberry plants to it in the ground, not the containers, they seem to be surviving so far. The best part about the expansion of the container garden is it only cost about 15 bucks. We had a neighbor who is moving and was giving away some welded wire fencing, I had the t-posts in my metal scrap pile, so we only had to buy I corner post.
Here is some pics of the garden from this morning.
The expansion is from those bales on the right to the fence at the gate. We still need to move that pile of sand, but that will go in the bottom of those containers.
The regular garden, we put up bird netting around the tomatoes today and Trudy fixed the bird netting around the strawberries. Today I also got the watering timer installed so in our heat the plants will be happy to be watered at 4:00 in the morning.
Two of the new blackberries we grew these off of our original bush.
The other two.

I once again have gone months without updating the blog. Life has gotten in the way and the trail through the mountains and valleys of life has been very eventful. As time passes I'll share some of what we experienced over the course of 2013.
New peppers for the year.
Below are the pictures of zucchini and yellow crook neck squash that are coming up. I'm going to try something different with them this year. As the plant grows I'm going to remove the lower leaves and tie the main plant to a pole. We'll see how that works.
Lavender I don't know how to use this, but apparently my wife does.
Something to draw bees.
The onions are coming up.
There is more to share, but for now adieu.
