New Life

No, I'm not pregnant, but we do have new life in our garden!  Some people requested that I post updated pictures, so here they are. 

These are the three square foot beds, front to back: corn, beans, and tomatoes/flowers.

This is our corn.  We planted it at the end of April, beginning of May.  Looking good!

We have 2 rows of lima beans and 2 rows of green beans.  They should be ready to harvest in about 3 weeks!

There are 8 tomatoes plants in the middle and then flowers in the corners.  The flowers haven't done as well as we wished.  Any thoughts on how to make them look better?  We planted a lot of tomatoes and I'm the only one who eats them, but I will be sure to eat them all - I love tomatoes!

Josh loves gardening and Thomas is right there beside him telling me, "I helping daddy in the garden."  It is amazing how much we have enjoyed having a garden.  I'll admit Josh has done the majority of the work at this point.  I do water it on occasion, but he really loves to work in it.  I foresee that I will have a larger role when it is time to harvest and put up the produce. 

We are also in the process of starting a compost pile.  Here is the beginning of the work and a cute picture of Thomas.

Nice work! I'll be glad to help you out with those tomatoes if you find you have too many! ;-)

Your garden looks really good!! Jeramy has started posting garden helps on his blog: I don't know as much as he does on growing plants, but perhaps you just need a little fertilizer on your flowers.
