Garden Explosion

Chris and I planted a garden this summer! I was a little skeptical when we first put the seeds in the ground because I have never taken care of a garden before. Chris wanted to plant every seed he could possible get his hands on and i'm sure glad he did.

{Before} we planted anything

{a couple of weeks later}  we had our seeds in the ground and Chris engineered a sweet drip system to water our garden.

{a couple more weeks later} we have an explosion of corn, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, raspberries, peas, jalapenos, bell peppers, red peppers, Big Jim peppers, green beans, squash, pumpkins, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

I am in desperate need to learn how to make Jam and Garden Salsa. If you have any easy recipes please share!
