The Jungle Gym

Whew that new gym I joined is a killer!
My favorite machine is:

It really works those arm and lower back muscles.
As does all the "toe-touching" weed pulls like here:

Can you spot the carrots in the photo below?

Me either! Surrounded by California poppies (which have almost the same. exact. leaf just in a slightly different shade of green), and other weeds that I couldn't pull until the wee carrot sprouts had established themselves a little better.
Ahhhh so much better! Feel the burn!

Believe it or not the following image depicts two rows of raspberry plants with a space for walking in between.

Haha. Yeah. Sure.

See? There's a path in there somewhere....

Much better! Weed repellent fabric covered in pea gravel should do the trick.

And this:

Is precisely why I now have this:

A completely enclosed garden complete with awesome gate.
(The sign says "Meet me in the garden.")

Here's a shot of my zinnias to show Kim.

My baby cantaloupe

And some photo edit fun:

I was telling a neighbor the Farmtown app on Facebook is soooo much easier than the real garden in our backyard. Sad, I know.

Love the up close shots!

Love your Zinnias! I also really love the photo of the raspberries, it's beautiful!

I have so many weeds in my garden right now!

We couldn't get our cantaloupe to come up for some reason.

It's looking very pretty over at your place!

I love, love, love the shot of the raspberries!!!
You have a great eye.

I envy your green thumb. I can cook, but I kill all my plants. :(
I really want to plant tomatoes and herbs. They cost a fortune in the store, and I am a sucker for a sweet, garden tomato!

OMG, your photos are awesome! I especially love the raspeberries and the rooster!
