Mary-Mary, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

This year doing my garden in raised boxes and containers has proven to be much more successful.  Although I have been limited with what I can plant.  I didn't plant watermelons, corn, or anything that took a lot of space.  Yesterday I harvested a bunch of the radishes.  I will put more in this weekend. 
The center aisle between the two raised boxes is where I tossed the mystery seeds after having them all open up in an unexpected rain storm.  I tossed a few handfuls of soil, and then scattered the seeds.  Turns out this is a very good way to garden!!!  Who knew?
I put a few things in some other containers.  Strawberries in the tire.  Sweet Peas and peppers in the tall containers, and herbs in the lower ones.
Yesterday I had a visit from my girls. Hannah.....
 And her little sis, Claire.
And this morning I babysat Clairey while her Mommy went to the doctor.
Noah was having too much fun to get dressed.
Looks like it is going to be a great weekend for being outside.  Now hurry up Friday!!!
