Ever since putting in this garden, I've grocery shopped much less, as if it is yielding pounds of tomatoes, serranos, okra*, and tarragon**. It's not. But I think we're getting somewhere. I also think some hungry caterpillars are getting further, by the looks of the sage leaves. Who knew those little bastards had gourmet tastes?
* which i haven't planted yet ** which is probably better measured in ounces
This is a fine looking tomato plant, breed Husky Cherry Red, which is a small fruit tomato but sounds like a plump fruit who dances for money.
And in another inappropriate shocker, this Spirea, usually white and known as Bridal Wreath because, I presume, it was used to make some, is popping out fuschia. I find this to be disappointing and would only use it to make a bridal wreath for Malibu Barbie.

Taste Tester and I decided we wanted a garden this year, and after much planning we made
a few 15 trips to Home Depot gathering supplies. I assumed it would be some chicken wire stapled to a few stakes to keep the dogs out, but this is what he had in mind.
So far I've planted tomatoes and have a big selection of herbs about to be planted. According to know-it-all-gardeners I ask, I'm behind on planting things. However, according to Aggie Extension Service for Travis County, I'm right on schedule. We'll see how we do.
Since the garden is alongside the Taj MaShed, I think it will be referred to as the palace gardens.
