I planted a little summer garden about 3 1/2 weeks ago, just after my summer break started...Summer squash, zucchini, tomatoes, & bell peppers. I edged the garden with marigolds because I read that the smell of the flowers deters rabbits & squirrels (which are run rampant in our yard), and the marigolds excrete chemicals into the soil that deter slugs & many bugs. So far it appears to be working!

And, perhaps the best part-I also planted a little herb garden...cilantro, basil, oregano, & parsley. I love little more than the way fresh herbs taste!

Here's what we started with...

 3 1/2 weeks later...

We're so looking forward to harvesting some homegrown vegetables & herbs this summer.
