Turkey day x3

So Danna and I survived another holiday involving a good amount of driving. The only picture I have for the day is of a Honda converted in too...well into some thing.
We started the day with brunch at my Mom's house. I can't remember the last time I had waffles that didn't come frozen in plastic. Good eats. Then back home to look after our still sick dog. Then down to Danna's aunt Julie's for afternoon turkey. Good eats there too. Then back to Mom's to meet my sister Allison's boyfriend. More good eats. Finally getting back home and going to sleep.

What the bugs have left me in my garden

So this is what is left of my cabbage. It used to have four leaves but apparently some bug decided to eat out one of them.

This is the only strawberry plants to survive out of three purchased. It too has been chewed on.

Here are three of the four roma tomato plants I managed to grow from seed.

This cherry tomato plant was purchased and is about to start growing some mini tomatoes.

This monstrosity is my raised bed. I'm sure I can make better use of the space but hey I'm learning. I'm digging a normal garden next to this one but it seems to be taking forever do the fact the ground it so hard I have to use a pick to loosen it up. Try to contain your excitement while you wait for Pictures to come. Special thanks to my mom for the gift card to Home depot for plants that were already started.
