broccoli, potatoes, and strawberries, oh my

The title of this post about sums it up - we now have growing in the half-planted garden: broccoli (its flowering already!!!), potatoes, strawberries (there is a ton a fruit on my plants - hopefully the dog will stop getting herself tangled in the net I have over them so the birds stay away), peas, and lettuce. There are also some volunteer squash plants and sunflowers springing up from last year...now the waiting begins. I can't wait to harvest something!!

There's alot more to plant, but there is definitely a sense of satisfaction watching what we have start to grow. The heat the last few days (and boy, has there been heat) lets us know that summer is on its way, and with it juicy ripe tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, and mounds and mounds of zucchini (and I still haven't made a dent in last years freezer stock!). So here's to summer, and vegetables, in all their glory.
