I've managed to get my first plants into the ground, with bark to keep the weeds down on the left-hand side of my plot. In the foreground is my flower bed and strawberry patch. Then the three kinds of beans I planted, some cucumbers, fennel, and tomato plants. Here's a closeup of the flowers as of now:
The heather is from last year's garden
The only flower that made it from last year is the pink heather. There's also snapdragons, zinnias, and petunias. I'll keep you posted on their progress.
Joe's Best spicy salad mix
They don't look like much right now, but in just a few weeks, there should be enough for me to make a salad! At least they're not all droopy like they were when I first planted them.

My mother always told me that plants do well with benign neglect, as long as you water them. We'll see!
