Brian Definitely has a Green Thumb!

I have to take a moment to brag about the hubs today. Ever since last fall Brian has been prepping our garden. We werent sure how this first year, with such poor soil would turn out. He tilled the garden, added compost and soil prep, tilled again, shoveled the rows, constructed his genius watering system, weeded, added iron, added other stuff that I really don't know the names of, and weeded and watered, and apparently gave the garden the much needed TLC that it needed because all of his hard work has payed off.
Our Personal Bountiful Basket
Pumpkins (and of course B is not just "letting them grow" he goes out an rotates them and makes sure they are standing up to ensure a nice round pumpkin, I think he may even sing to them a little :)
We have tons of tomatoes...
Peppers, and some sneaky onions trying to get some of the limelight.RASPBERRIES!!!!! We transplanted all of these berries from Brian's parents house. We weren't even expecting them all to survive, let alone actually produce berries this year!

And last but not least, our stubborn corn. We also transplanted a few from my dads garden to make up for the few empty slots that refused to grow, even after being planted twice!On a side note, if anyone needs some basil or lettuce...... we have TONS!

Ok, everyone in Pocatello would probably love to learn the answer to getting corn to grow here. That has always been our struggle. The raspbeerries are an awesome surprise! Good job Brian!
