In the beginning...

Here is where we started. We constructed a couple of 4' x 8' raised beds and some buckets and flower pots.
Two raised beds
All the left over seedlings
And here is where we were about a month, month and a half ago
Tomatoe plants that did not get nearly enough trellis to grow on (and look at Paul running away from the camera :)
The best zucchini plant ever!
Zucchini plants make anyone into a gardener.
Jalapeno peppers, Serrano peppers, banana peppers, habanero peppers, and Cayenne peppers (and one little artichoke that refused to grow bigger than that)
And this is where we are today ~ notice the greenhouse in progress

Peppers and three late green bean plants
more peppers
the basil is all that is left from what use to be the tomatoe bed
Don't worry, the tomatoes went on to become...

hot sauce
and more hot sauce! 2 & 1/4 gallons to be exact.
Some of the more ripe tomatoes from earlier in the season went on to make some great tomatoe sauce (turned out more like pizza sauce, but hey, I'm not complaining)

Note to self: do not only plant small tomatoes, big ones would be nice too...

Pickled zucchini, pickled green tomatos, and pickled peppers (lots of pickled peppers!)
