Today we put in our garden. Since we live in the middle of Minneapolis, and we have a tiny yard, we have a spot down at our community garden. I think it looks great, I hope it stays that way.

Sorry for the odd angle photos!

We have tomatos, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, peas, some herbs, chard, zucchini, kale, cucumber, onions, carrots, radishes, leaf lettuce and some flowers. We have found that we can really plant quite heavily and as long as we add compost and peat for mulching our garden can produce quite a bit. And tonight we had Rhubarb Custard Cake for dinner. Yum!!!
But oh am I sore!

I'm surprised you can safely plant this early -- we have to wait until next weekend to be certain we don't get caught in a late freeze. There is nothing like "fresh from the garden". I hope your garden flourishes.

How exciting. We usually plant our garden right before memorial day. i can't wait! Yours is making me very eager to get cracking!

Rhubarb custard cake? That sounds great -- I love strawberry-rhubarb pie!
