Gardening- Phase 1

This year I decided to plant a veggie garden.  Things are so expensive at the store, and we have the room... so, why not??  The only problem is our clay soil is terrible.  I'm not sure if all our hard work is in vain, or not.  Let's hope for the latter. 

This is the "garden" before tilling, watering, and planting.

I know she looks dry and not fruitful, but give it time.  I hope she produces SOMETHING. 

I started small since I have never done a garden before.  I planted tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, and banana peppers.  We also have a strawberry plant.  :)
