Garden Planted. Mostly.

Peppers, watermelons, and tomatoes.  Lots of tomatoes, Brandywine heirloom and cherries.  We'll see how it goes this year.  Much bigger than last year's garden at 150 square feet, versus the former 65-ish.  The layout's also better than in past years, there's plenty of mulch, and there's a leave-it-alone soaker hose dedicated to each of the three beds.  Toss in a UV flashlight for spotlighting hornworms, and the whole thing should go a lot easier than last year's effort.

Still some stuff to do.  The fence mesh needs to be properly stretched and hung on the T-posts, but it's good enough now to keep the bunnies at bay until I can get back to it.  Got to build some supports for the tomatoes.  Think I'll make tripods out of bamboo growing in the side yard for this; easier and cheaper than stakes.  Maybe some more mulch.  And the rest will just take time, water, and sunlight.
