292/366: Out-of-focus green tomatoes


One of those where the focus is totally not what I intended, and yet I totally love the results.

Totally.

On a side note, this is the best our poor tomato plants have managed all season. They’ve tried. Oh, how they’ve tried.

Not feeling so great today, so here is a photo of a butterfly I took in Austin last year.

In the Garden

Ryan and I decided to try our hand at gardening this year (since we have our own back yard and all) using the Square Foot Gardening method.

This is our garden today:

Well… that was what it looked like before I harvested our first crop of spinach!

Needless to say, dinner tonight was a spinach quesadilla.

And it was full of yum.

Building Garden Beds

Working on the garden boxes

Ryan and I are planning a vegetable garden this year, using the square foot gardening method. We want to plant three 4′ x 4′ raised beds, and decided to make boxes with a bottom panel as well, for a number of reasons. Of course, we wanted to do it as economically as possible, so we purchased three 4′ x 8′ panels of 3/4″ plywood and cut into pieces to construct three 4′ x 4′ x 1′ boxes. Ryan’s dad, Steve, helped us put them together in his warehouse. Here are some pictures I took during the epic construction process:
