…. and by veggies, I mean the kind you eat … not a “frontal wedgie.”
For real peeps, Scott and I managed to grow food. I never thought I would be so darn excited about growing food in my life, but every night we are home I go and check on them like they are my little pets (well … technically, it’s the closest thing Scott has to a pet right now!).
We first planted our little vegetable garden on May 5. Here is a photo of the planting. Oh and good thing you can’t smell photos, because since we fertilized the ground, it totally smells like poop.
About a month later on June 2, Scott took some more photos because the plants were HUGE! I meant to share them with all of you, but I’ve been slacking on my blog posting. So, I took some more last night after my run.
First, is it normal for zucchini and squash plants to really get this big?! If so, I had no idea. They are totally having a hostile take-over of our poor little green beans that are behind them.
Here are a couple photos that compare the garden from last night to three weeks ago:
The tomato plants are growing wildly. They have actually produced quite a few tomatoes so far.
Here are how some of the other plants are faring:
I ended up picking a few of the vegetables that were ready … and a baby roma tomato that had fallen
Again, I have no idea why I am so pumped about this … maybe it really is time to have some kiddos. Haha!
However, in kitchen news, we are demo-ing the cabinets and bulkhead this weekend. Hopefully all goes well and I have some pics to show you after the weekend. Yay!!!
