I think having people in a video adds life to the garden. That’s me working in the garden at the beginning of the video, I used a tripod to hold the camera. I don’t have a very steady hand and use the Monopod a lot shooting my video, it works well in tight space.

I uploaded my video in HD format, if you have a slow internet connection please watch in Youtube.
It has been raining some in our area, but the weather has been nice most of the time. The hot and humid weather doesn’t bother me. I think since I was born in a hot climate of Laos, I’m adapting well.
Bo sometimes helps watering my garden, although I like to water the vegetables myself since I’m not as rough on the spraying as him and I also soak the ground to make sure the roots get plenty of water.
The cucumber trellis turns out as I had pictured it back in March of 2009, the cucumber wines cover the A-Frame perfectly.
It also helps lift the fruits off the ground.
I only planted 3 cherry tomato plants and I have plenty to last me the whole summer.
The chili peppers are a hardy plant and nothing seems to bother them.
The Thai eggplants are the opposite, they attracts so many bugs and have to be cared for all the time.
The Brussels Sprouts that I planted from seeds are doing well, can’t wait to see what they look like.
It’s almost embarrassing to take a picture of the basil since I picked them too often and they don’t grow fast enough for me.
The main branch of my pomegranate tree died and it looks more bushy now.
The flowers really brighten up the garden, and attracts bees that help pollinated the fruits and vegetables.
