En Gard(en) – Part Dos
Obviously, these pics are a little out-dated (I’m almost completely caught up with the blog) – They were taken a day after we had a nice rainy weekend here about a month ago. Twas a magically rainy Spring for Atlanta. And my veggies loved it!

I firmly believe that as human beings and souls existing in at least one plane on planet Earth, we should be required to grow things. Food, flowers, lucky bamboo, whatever. It feels good. Try it. I am new to growing, this is only my 3rd garden. I’m still going real small, trying to learn it. Boyee this Georgia clay ain’t no joke neither!
These are pictures of when I first planted the garden, in the last week of April, 2009 – I planted late this year, using saplings. Next year I plan to prepare the soil 2 months in advance and plant seeds, albeit earlier.
- Tomatoes (4 Variations)
- Bell Peppers (Red and Green)
- Herbs (Chives, Boxwood and Lemon Basil, Sage)
- Hot Peppers (Jalapeno, Serrano, Habanero)
- Georgia Collard Greens
