If you remember some time back, I built a few garden boxes. This was my first attempt at gardening ever. Other than some corn, I attempted to grow when I was seven. On a shopping trip to T.G. & Y., unbeknownst to anyone, I bought some seeds. Once we got home, I planted the corn in the back yard. My organic corn plan, was not a hit with my mother. She didn't seem to appreciate the large stalks growing in random places throughout the backyard. At any rate, the corn didn’t make it to harvest.
So far, I feel like my garden is progressing nicely. The herbs have been no problem. I’ve already been cooking with them. Fresh herbs are the best. I’ve also already grown my own garlic. Tiffany came home from work and the garlic smell in the house nearly knocked her over, but the taste is spectacular. As for the garden boxes, I took some photos to track the progress.

A squirrel ate some of my strawberries. I put this owl there to scare the shit out of that squirrel or any others who try to eat my strawberries. I really like this owl. I may take him around to places and take pictures of his travels. Sort of like Flat Stanley...only not flat and an owl.
