Tomato plants. Got the starts from a guy in my ward that planted like 200 in a greenhouse, but only needed a dozen of them, so he announced them for free during Sunday School. Gotta love those Mormons.
Next year I will plant a TON of tomatoes, and attempt the whole canning-salsa procedure. Brian would say "wow, you're like domestica."

Right side of garden - again notice the sweet bricks. I just need some cool patio furniture out there....
We have tubing around the grass (got it from freecycle!), although Dad corrects me everytime I say tubing. Edging is the proper name, I think....
See those strawberries? The former owner planted those (yay!), and we got a few nice bowl fulls this year. The BIG plants are our SQUASH and PUMPKINS! It is just amazing how such tiny seeds can develop into jumungous plants. They are getting jumungouser every day, it's awesome. There is also 4 tomato plants in this pic, as well as a rhubarb (thank you Grandma!) and more flowers in the back. Honestly - here's my view on flowers: they're pretty and all, and look nice in a garden....but are highly unpractical, especially as they take up room that could be used to plant vegetables. Next year, the only flowers in our garden will be the ones that survive the winter and come out by themselves. We need room for all the REAL garden goods!
So I'm posting garden pictures. Scintillating, I know. Try to take deep breaths and stay calm.
I'll post other stuff too.
Pics from our world travels, cute pictures of Brian... and cute pictures of another little someone else in February! ;)
