Spring Gardening

I love these old whiskey barrels. With our mild winters, some annuals come back to life in the spring. The burst of any colorful flowers in a barrel makes me smile. Even those who claim to kill off everything can grow a tomato plant in one of these. I can't fathom not having home-grown tomatoes in the summertime.
With lots of abuse from children, our lawn has seen better days, so we've spent quite a lot of time reseeding this year.
What was once a 4-inch echinacea plant is now a 4-ft tall "bush". I can't wait to see how many blooms it will have.
Tomatoes, peppers, over 90 green bean plants, cukes, summer squash, zucchini, lettuce, chives, celery planted J's garden. We are still working on 3 other smaller garden areas.

I'm so envious of your garden. We used to have a big garden but don't anymore because we have a dog. He thinks anything we plant we do for his enjoyment in digging it up and chewing it to shreds. We built chain-link fortresses around our mulberry trees after he chewed two of them completely off! I do miss the fresh vegetables though.
