Please Grow!

Here she is... Our very first garden attempt (I don't think the 4 tomato bushes and 2 rows of lettuce in West Jordan counted) Brian has worked so hard, adding junk to the soil so that hopefully it will have some nutritional contribution to the plants and seeds we put in. He also just finished our handy watering system, and with only one geyser/ pipe burst casualty. I only wished I could have seen the actual event, all I got to see was a soaked and laughing, Brian come walking through the door.
Yay for raspberries! These are our raspberries we got from Brian's parents. They really need to start growing so that we can make our own raspberry freezer jam to sustain our family, so that we no longer have to rely on Grandma's supply:)

I'm glad Brian was laughing when he was soaked because of a breaking and geysering. Eric would not have been laughing. :) Good luck with the garden. Especially those raspberries. Mmmm...

If those starts take, you will have the yummiest raspberries- I remember his parents berries- yummo!!! I am making rasp freezer jam today- bought them from Costco. Your garden looks amazing and I would have paid money to see Brian with the pipe bursting! He's a good sport- Mitch wouldn't have been so pleasant!
