It's already been one week!

Well we've had our garden for 1 week and nothing has died, yet! Here's a quick recap of what has happened and what we've observed in our garden:
*harvested basil and lettuce
*strawberry plants do not like the Arizona sun on them ALL day
*there are lots of flowers on the strawberry plants that will hopefully turn into little strawberries
*all the plants have some sort of new growth going on
*the carrots and green beans have started sprouting!!
*oregano and cilantro aren't big fans of the sun all day
*we figured out a creative way to shade the plants at different times during the day
*lettuce grows fast
*Reagan enjoys laying in the garden

  1. When I've seen fields of strawberries planted in the desert, they have this kind of mesh placed over the plants that filters the sun so it's not so harsh. Maybe you kind find something like that?

    Kudos to you for trying a garden. I've always wanted to do it, but I'm just too lazy! :)
