2013 Garden Bounty

This year we decided to compete against the Brentwood wildlife, which includes a plethora of squirrels, rabbits, and birds. Dave took to securing a varmint-proof garden and we choose many different wonderful seed packets to plant with the kids. The dream garden we planted included carrots, eggplant, brussels sprouts, beets, lettuce, arugula, green beans, peppers, corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, zucchini, and more. As the season progressed and the animals got the best of several baby plants, our “bounty” ended up being 200 or more cayenne peppers, a few jalapenos, about 50 cucumbers, enough hops for one batch of beer, and two watermelons. Below is one of the small but tasty watermelons we recently ate. Better luck next year I guess.
