The Great Outside

We've got a bit of a garden growing outside now.  I've always had some interest in gardening, however it wasn't something I was able to pursue until we got our house this year.  We've got Tomatoes growing, some Spaghetti Squash and some Bell Peppers, and in a pot, I've got a Strawberry plant growing.

I know, my yard isn't in the greatest shape, and that I need to prune the grass down on the edge of the garden, but my goal is to get this garden through the summer, and then next year I plan on doing a raised bed garden, that way it'll be easier to manage, and hopefully I won't have issues with weeds and such.  I just hope my garden makes it because I've been having a difficult time watering them.  It's so hot here, that the water evaporates in a matter of minutes, and I didn't have the foresight to enrich the soil before putting my plants in, so hopefully I can help them thrive with watering them and getting some food for them.  Anyways, next to my garden I've also got a very large rosebush.  I didn't think it was going to bloom, but last weekend we had rain, and it looks like that did the trick; since it bloomed and still has buds forming and getting ready to bloom themselves.
 It's kind of large and wild; and I knew it was pruned before, but they didn't prune it back enough!  I kind of like it though all wild looking the way it is.  And yes, I know the lawn needs to be mowed, something Jeff will be doing tomorrow.
