back flower bed

This is the before picture..  I dug and dug to get the lemon balm out of this flower bed. the whole thing was nearly full of it.
this isn't the best picture as I had to use my cell phone. My love has the camera as they are working on an old bridge and I want to see what they are doing. I keep moving the ceramics around as I can't decide where I want them to stay. Some of the plants are just sprouts still so it will look different again once everything is full size.  The notorious lemon balm is growing along side in the left corner.

Some of our vegetable garden didn't come up. We think it must have drowned so we have to replant the carrots, lettuce, some of the beets. The peas are coming up, some of the beans and my sunflowers. The tomato plants are doing well and I got the cucumbers in the other day. I have a long English cucumber plant in a big pot on the deck as well. At my best friends house we planted a huge row of yellow onions, 1/3 of a row of Spanish and 1/3 of a row of red. I have no idea how long the rows are but I'll work on getting a picture. :)  If my storage works out right, we shouldn't have to buy an onion at the store for a year... LOL  We also have a row of broccoli. We started veggie gardening as just off setting some of the bought groceries, now we are working on growing more of what we actually eat. We are so blessed to have so much land available, between our yard, my father in laws and my best friends. We are going to be sharing around as well.
