around the garden with farmama

I joining Farmama a day late for “Around the Garden/Farm”.  In our garden this week, the big news is, well, that we have a garden. 
Finally the rain stayed away long enough for us to finish tilling our “Garden Annex” that we share with Cowboy’s parents. We Cowboy installed deer fencing around the entire perimeter, and Cowboy’s dad and I got all of the seedlings and seeds in the ground.  All that remains to do is to get a second batch of potatoes planted.  This garden is for our crops that need lots of sun and/or that we hope will yield big harvests (potatoes, tomatoes, corn, beans).
Over in the raised beds at our house, things are coming along nicely.

The herbs I transplanted to pots a few weeks ago are thriving, and I just finished transplanting the remaining ones yesterday.

What’s happening in your garden?
