Garden 2012 update #2

We started to harden off the seedlings today.  Can you believe they were just seeds a month ago?
Here are tomatoes, peppers, basil and eggplant sitting out on the sunny front porch.

These are strawberries in one of the raised beds Brendon built last week.
 The fantastic little beds lined up so sweetly.  The first one contains the strawberries.
The second and third raised bed are herbs or they will be! 
The fourth one will be asparagus.
 One of our blooming fruit trees. 
 Brendon watering the strawberries.
 Mavis our border collie.  She is a hilarious trip!!!
She would love to live on a livestock farm, but for now she contents herself chasing birds, bees, runners and cyclists!
 Zippy one of the farm cats.  I agreed to outdoor cats and am proud to say they did their job this week and caught a critter! 
 RJ the other farm cat.  He is a lion and gives grasshoppers a terrible fright!

 Sarah is 13 years old.  This is the smartest and best guard dog.
Love her, but she's sure aging!

This is a great old dogwood! It's on the side of my front yard.  My neighbor thinks it's possibly near to 100 years old.  I don't know, but it's pretty neat.
