2012 Garden- Part 3, All Planted

We spent last weekend in Fredericksburg, but I'm still working on getting through all the pictures from the trip.  Before we left, we finished planting the garden and Josh got the watering system working.  Five days later things are still looking pretty good.  A few plants are showing signs of shock, but they're ok so far.
We're trying a new method of weed control this year.  These plastic row covers help keep moisture in and hopefully will prevent too many weeds from growing.  We're experimenting to see if the black or clear does a better job- we've read conflicting articles.  We plan to just mow the weeds between the rows. The outermost rows will not be covered.  It's good to have everything planted.  Now comes the hard part... waiting :)
