"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Wordless Wednesday, Well Not Really Wordless

I am starting to think that I am becoming a bit addicted to gardening I have a small space just a corner of the yard on the side of our house designated for my gardening and when I first set up my garden in January it looked like this..

Just three raised bed boxes and a few planters
when the time to plant for spring came I was up to four boxes

Summer gave me to much time, because now that I am well into replanting for fall I am now up to five 4x4 raised bed boxes,(4) 2x2 boxes, one for each of the girls, a pool we are using for pumpkins, a watermelon bed and not pictured a mini greenhouse.
I was excited to get each of the girls their own boxes and let them plant the vegetables of their choice.
and you would think I have stuffed that poor space to capacity but I already have plans for two more raised bed boxes along the fence and am looking in to getting a few dwarf fruit trees, pray for me. :)
