Annual Garden Post: The Best Yet

Scaling back on gardening space when we moved from Georgia to Texas year last year didn't discourage  Brant when it came planting season.  In fact, this avid gardener was actually excited for the challenge to reconfigure his plants to fit in our (much smaller) Texas backyard.  Leaving behind the square foot garden boxes and trellis, he went back to the drawing board and this year he planted in regular ol' pots - or whatever else he could plant in (remember his first garden here).

And the perseverance has been paying off!

It may be a smaller garden than in years past, but its thriving and the best one he's had in the five years we've been married.  Not that he has gone it alone, though.  With the help of some little helping fingers (who quickly learned that we only pick the red tomatoes) in our kitchen counter top basket there is now an ongoing fresh harvest supply of cherry tomatoes, okra, bell peppers, green onions, banana peppers, and jalapeno peppers.

Hats off to a hard working father/daughter gardening duo!

Great job Brant (and Savannah)! I am anxiously awaiting the day when I go out to our garden and see a whole bunch of ripe tomatoes!
