Here's an initial set of pictures from this years garden. Most I took just after sunrise a couple mornings ago.

Just sharing the beauty. I'll add others as I take them through the summer.

What a spacious garden! Do you optimize it too? LOL, kidding.
What're the black stuff and hollow boxes for?

No bogey you definitely don't see that in the city and thanks for the complinent. At least not like that. Jenie, those black things are tarps. We put those between a lot of the smaller veggie rows to keep the weeds down. They also provide a convenient walking path (those rows are about 75 feet each). The square boxes are bricks holding them down. Around the larger plants like tomatoes, peppers and squash we put down a bed of newspapers and cover it with straw for the same reason - to control the weeds. The newspaper actually keeps the weeds in check. The straw is merely decorative to cover the ugly newspaper. It's an organic gardening trick to avoid spraying weedkiller.

You need some ghost pepper plants to complete your collection (1 mil+ SHU's)! 25 Bhut Jolokia seeds for $5 on ebay or if you don't trust that, Amazon has 6 seeds for $10. I'm tempted to grow these just to have around for my friends who swear they love peppers and think there's no such thing as 'too hot'.

Side note, ever seen that show called Man vs. Food? Watched him do an episode in San Antonio the other day. Took on what the restaurant had termed the "Four Horsemen Burger".

Quote:
“Only three people have finished it,” Joey Prado, owner of the Callaghan Road restaurant, said of the half-pound burger made with grilled jalapeños, serrano peppers, ghost chiles (the dreaded Naga Jolokia) and jalapeño jack cheese, plus a dousing of habanero sauce.

No major garden this year. I enjoyed that garden with my former girlfriend. That relationship has ended, and at the moment, there isn't enough room at my new girlfriend's place (where I'll be moving next month) for a garden like the old ones until we move to someplace out of the city. We do plan to plant some sunflowers and some small garden veggies and flowers.
