As my post title implies I have photos to share! I shall use them as my update guide.
I put in some edging around my strawberries in a hap-hazard fashion. I mainly just want to keep them from spreading and I think it will do the job. Or at least make it easier for me to cut the runners as they try to escape over the edge. The ground wasn't exactly level, so that is the main reason the edging is a little 'off '. I put it in on May 1st (date of the photo), and it is still in place. Those bricks are no longer there, so it is basically on it's own.
Other progress that was made in the garden yesterday, consisted of me getting the bean trellis set up and then planting the beans. Hopefully this new position will not over shade the strawberries. I think it will be fine, but we'll see!
Next I decided to work on removing the old fence posts that are currently where I plan to put tomato plants. These posts were there when we moved in and since we expanded the garden this year, they are now in a bad spot. We discovered that at least one of the corner posts is there to stay. It is actually in an OK place, so that doesn't concern me, but the ones that are not in an OK place need to come out. So I dug and dug and dug until I found the end of the first one.
Before heading inside I took a look at my oregano. As you can see, it looks rather... Dead. (Above) Upon closer inspection, however, you can see that it is slowly coming back and will likely take over the entire container this year! (Pictures at left)
I have both Greek and Italian oregano in there, but I honestly couldn't tell you which is which anymore. They even taste the same to me. I have read that Italian oregano is supposed to be stronger and have a more pungent flavor, but as I said, they taste the same to me. Even Tom can't tell the difference, so I wonder why they say that. If anyone knows, please feel free to enlighten me. :)

Jalapeño peppers before I transplanted one of them. They are enjoying their new found space.
Jack-o-lantern pumpkin on May 6th. There are two in the pot now.
Mini overview of some tomatoes and peppers. The tomatoes obviously like to show off their fast growing speeds. (May 10th)
One of two trays in my kitchen window. All transplanted tomato and pepper extras.
Here's hoping the weather is tolerable wherever you may be.
