I'm starting to think about the food I want to grow in my backyard this year. Last year was the first year with a "working" pair of raised beds. We had successful crops of red leaf lettuce, basil (for pesto), butternut squash, tomatoes, and more. A long wet winter has me wishing for warm sunshine. I was out in the garden over the last weekend with my new Canon DSLR and took some shots to chronicle the changes on the fruit trees.
