Our Spring 2012 Victory Garden

These are plants for our current victory garden. Some are new friends, some are old. Our spring growing season is very short. In fact, our garden goes dormant in July and August. (Not worth it to deplete the aquifer to keep plants alive in 100+ degree heat.) Eventually, you can see the final product of these plants at RedWhiteandGrew.com.
