Kitchen Garden

How Does My Garden Grow?  A work in progress.

I've never had a garden.  I've had flower beds, and I've planted a few tomato, pepper, and zucchini plants before.  But I've never had a full-fledged garden.  So I decided I would like to develop a Kitchen Garden where I could grow some herbs and vegetables. This is all new to me, so I have a lot to learn, and I invite you to follow along to see how my garden grows.  Succeed or fail, I promise to show and tell.  It will be fun!
