Garden Update

Our garden is growing like crazy!  Despite the army of ants that has taken over the entire side of the yard (and my husband loves it when I go on and on about them - ha.), everything has grown pretty well.  If you remember a few months ago, here's where we started:

And here's a picture I took about two weeks ago:

We've gotten plenty of cucumbers (Nick got a delicious pickle recipe from his grandma), banana peppers and tomatoes.  The jalapenos are growing pretty well and the green peppers are about to be ready to harvest.  We've had a harder time with the green beans and blackberries.  But I have to say that I'm pretty impressed with how well everything has gone, especially when you look at the before pictures.  Nick has spent a lot of time taking care of the garden and I'm pretty proud of him!  :)  Now if only we can get rid of those pesky ants...
