A Lesson in Farmer-cology

I think I mentioned that we have a garden plot on our land. I think it's probably 1/4 to 1/2 acre fenced in. Yeah, it's a little more than we're capable of managing as first time gardeners. So, this year we decided to start a little smaller with our garden. We went to Sam's and bought one of those upside-down garden sets. I know you've seen similar products advertised. You can grow tomato plants upside down, and a few other vine vegetables on the top. I'm almost afraid to even mention this in a post, in case we aren't successful. But if it does work, I'll post updates on our progress.

Here's Farmer/Pharmer Reagan planting our first tomato plant.

I love green bell peppers. Especially sauteed. This is my lone bell pepper plant.

This is a close-up of one of the three tomato plants.

In the top portion, we planted some strawberries.

Also up top is a cucumber plant. Please pray for the cucumber. It's not looking so good.

Hopefully in the next couple weeks we'll see some fruit - or in our case, vegetables - of our labor.

I've seen those planters before and always wondered how well they worked. I look forward to seeing more pictures as they grow! Looks like a good start to gardening for you all. :)
