My vegetable garden

I decided to enter the gardening fray this weekend by getting a bunch of vegetable plants for my tiny plot of land in my backyard.

I have a border around the road/driveway-facing edge of the yard where I can also plant flowers, but haven't yet and might not - I much prefer getting produce!

I intend to update it at least once a week with progress photos - more for my own records than anything, but might be good viewing for those with greener fingers :D

Thanks for the comments, and thanks Inglewood for the tips.. Last year the garden did pretty well considering all the 'vermin' we have around here (raccoons, squirrels, cats, etc.) and those included broccoli, tomato, squash (which just about owned every spare piece of the plot ;)) but not any other real 'salad' ingredients, so I will definitely keep an eye on my cucumber and probably get it staked or somesuch (I have a spare tomato cage that might work). right now, sadly, the cucumber isn't looking too great, so I'm hoping I can 'nurse' it into some sort of healthy looking thing soon. By the looks of the weather, we're in for a fair bit of sun so that'll be great :)

Oh and smoodgie, I had no idea about gardening really either until I just dove in the deep end last year, it's remarkably fulfilling to have baskets of crop at the end of the season though - not to mention fresh food out of the garden like that is wonderful for cooking with :D
