Well, today we put the rest of the boards up for our fence in the backyard. And since we had help from 2 missionaries and a friend from church, we were even able to paint the new boards. We were blessed with beautiful weather without too much wind. We even put in a border around the garden. While it does add personality, its purpose is to help people not walk through the garden. We will plant some veggies this week. We bought 2 tomato plants, 2 bell pepper plants (1 red and 1 green), and a mild jalapeno. We have lots of seeds in packets and will probably go get some more from Home Depot next week. We really want some zucchini and pumpkins. We also have a trellis to put in the ground and were thinking we could put a grape vine on each side. So many options =) I guess all we really would like to happen is to have at least 1 of each fruit or veggie grow. So, with a complete fence, grass, 6 fruit trees, a swing set, digging dirt for Isaac and all the 'girls' who come to play, and dirt roped off for a garden and plants in hand, I would say that we have a pretty complete backyard. With in 10 years it should be really complete with a pool!!!!
