This weekend I completed my veggie garden!
Here are a few pictures taken by my photographer and visual production director ;-) Allison!

1-Tomato's (La. Roma's, Celebrity's, Creole)
2-Cucumbers ( Dasher II's and this local grown strain called St.....?? I forget the name of it)
3-Bell Peppers ( Red/Green/Yellow...I also don't remember the names of each off the top of my head) 4-Summer Squash ( Yellow Sunburst, and Straight Neck Zucchini)
It is a small start, but I got to start somewhere. I did not use direct soil (which kind of worries me) I opted to go the vegetable garden soil route. Honestly, I wanted to get started and did not want to wait on the soil to be tested from the Louisiana AgCenter. I might regret that move, but if all my plants die, I can just chalk the whole thing up to a good lesson learned. I still plan to have the soil I collected tested. I will send it off possible tomorrow. The results will give me a good idea of what I need to incorporate in my next planting.
I am also starting my own compost pile. It will probably be pretty gross!!! but hopefully the stench will pay off in future planting.
Here is a link to the La AgCenter's website. It has a lot great resources and this particular link is to a pdf for La vegetable planting guide:
I will keep all posted on my progress!
