My own container garden

I decided that I wanted to grow my own bell peppers and strawberries this summer. The plants we bought are doing quite well. I have already gotten 10 strawberries and a pepper is growing as we speak from my little garden. Container gardening is nice because it is weed free.

Busy visitor

Nathan has been visiting with us for the past month. He came to help us remove some very large spiny Agave plants and look for a job. Not only has he accomplished helping us with our difficult plants but has also helped Brian's parents with getting their front yard looking better. Brian and Nathan managed to trim a hedge, worked on the sprinkler system, reseeded the lawn, trimmed some fruit trees, and weeded a small garden. He has also been helping the local landscaper for our complex with some yard work. While doing all this yard work Nathan has also sent out dozens of job applications. I think Nathan has been busier then either Brian or I for the past month.
