Spent this last weekend tripling the size of my existing garden. Still not to the size it needs to be, but everything is done in baby steps. The seeds have sprouted, the ground is nearly prepped, just waiting on the weather.

This year we are seeing a lot of new heirloom crops. Roman broccolli, Italian zucchini, black tomatoes, and several varieties of melons and squash. One crop I'm curious to try in our relatively dry soil is Kiwano, a melon native to Africa that should grow decently in this zone.

I'll get pics up in the next day or so, once the weather clears up.
