Gardening :: Actual first photos of the season 2015

I was looking through a few photos and I noticed that the ones I shared the other day were not actually the first photos of our garden this season. I really want to see how it grows this year so I'm going back in time a little to share these. It doesn't look very impressive but that's kind of the point. It is going to look so different as the year goes on. Can you tell that I am not even a little bit excited about our garden?

This is our future berry patch. This year though it is filled in with other things because the berries haven't spread yet. We have blueberries, strawberries, thyme, raspberries, beets, spinach, carrots, beans (which aren't actually sprouting still...might be a lost cause), peas, nasturtiums, sweet pea (to climb that music stand and a sunflower or two in the corners. Also, I used trimmed grape vines as row markers and some of them are growing grapes. I knew it was possible to start grapes that way but it's neat to see it happening.

This garden has green and yellow zucchini, myster squash that is either butternut or spaghetti (i started them from seeds I had saved but not labelled because obviously I would just remember), scarlet runner beans, radishes, jalapenos, cayenne pepper, romaine, arugula, leaf lettuce, two different beefsteak tomatoes, two different cherry tomatoes, either taxi, black krim or more cherry tomatoes (again with the seed saving and not labelling), basil, marigolds, broccoli, chard, so much kale, quinoa, kohlrabi, cucumber (which isn't sprouting), lemon cucumber, parsnips, peas and more spinach. Oh and marigolds and more nasturtiums. I think that's everything but I might be forgetting something.

Both of these photos are crooked and it's making me crazy but I wanted to remember how it looked.

We have done so much since these photos. The only thing I regret is not taking actual before photos. We have added gardens and flowers to so many parts of the yard but I don't have the ugly before photos for comparison. We have one area that still needs to be done so I'll try to remember to take a before of that. I am really bad at remembering to take before photos so I won't be too hard on myself if I forget again.
