I'm new at this, so the smallest accomplishments seem huge to me. I'm so excited, I just had to share:

As you'll see, I'm as new to photography as I am to SFG. . .

The pics look great!! I love the sign. Is it a 4 by 6 garden?...and did you use Mel's formula of 1/3 each of compost, vermiculite and spagnum peat moss?

It looks great! What kind of peas are those? What zone are you in?

You know...I have seen lots of baby pictures, and truly, not ALL of them are cute.
But...I have yet to see a homely SFG bed!

Nice work! I'm just putting in a direct link for you.

Thanks everyone! Those are just your basic sugar snap peas, but three days of temps in the ninties here isn't making them very happy. The garden is 4x8 and I have to admit, I cheated a bit on the mix (just don't tell Mel!). I'm in Virginia, zone 7, everything in the garden was started from seed in the ground, but I have cukes and tomato starts that will be going in soon. Some of my beets didn't sprout, which means I have some holes to fill; basil and nasturtiums should do the trick. This has been so much fun!
