The beginnings of my veggie garden

Here it is! SOMEWHERE I have "before" and "after" pics of this garden, but I'll have to look later! This is my vegetable garden. Hubby made it about 15 years ago out of railroad ties. We had a little Nissan pickup truck back then and I remember that they nearly did the truck in when we hauled them! They are HEAVY! I've never done anything with it the last few years because we have 3 big dogs and they would just dig plants up. So, I didn't plant anything in it. It "rested". (Translated...I let it get full of weeds!). But this year, with everybody planting gardens, I thought it was time to keep the dogs out and re-establish my territory! So, back in November of 2008, I planted some sweet peas, some sugar snap peas, and some tomatoes. These are some early pics of the garden.

Sweet peas and snap peas are a good choice when you're reclaiming your territory because the lock nitrogen into the soil and condition it for other vegetables you'll put in later. Go for you!
