We FINALLY finished our vegetable garden on Saturday and my body is still sore. We were out there for about 8 hours planting and setting up the fence, all the tilling and everything else was done the past few weekends.
It's about 34 x 18 feet






We planted 24 tomato plants, 4 different kinds, green and red pepper, green beans, cucumbers and 3 kinds of lettuce. There is also an herb section of chives, rosemary parsley and basil.

Oh and my clematis is blooming!

OK, I'm officially jealous! All my gardening is the container variety since we're in a townhouse.

The reason we planted so many is because my mother in law cans them. She cans them whole, also cans sauce and chili sauce.
This is our first time with a vegetable garden so we are very excited and hoping to have lots to give away to friends, co workers etc.

Very nice!!! I'm envious of the fence you have around it - we're always losing half our stuff to the deer and rabbits.
