Something I Can Do, Apparently.

My garden is actually growing! I'm shocked - I think once again though, I may have planted things too close together. But so far, so good. Last year my tomatoes were aweful - pathetic little shriveled up things. We were able to get about 2 mouse bites from them. This year, I'm already seeing beeeauuutiiful little green round tomatoes on the vine. The blooms are staying put (last year they all fell off).
I would swear that the corn (back right) has grown another foot since I took this picture, and so has the cantaloupe (front left). The little sprout in his diaper has grown a smidgen too.
Here's what we've got going so far:

Tomatoes
Green Beans
Okra
Red, Yellow and Orange Peppers
Cilantro
Basil
Corn
Cantaloupe
Squash
Zuchinni
Lima Beans
Onions
Hoping to have some room to plant pumpkins in a few months. The kids are having fun watching things grow - hopefully that will encourage them to actually eat something that doesn't come out of a bag in the freezer.
Well - off to do some creating in the "sewing room - or dining room as some people like to call it" - I've got some cool projects in the works but I need to work on them some more before I share the pictures. Here's a hint - one project involves my husband's suit pants.

Ben made me two little square foot gardens. I wanted five but I guess I will settle for 2 right now. I can't wait to plant all our stuff once we get back next week.

Oh good! You'll have so much fun with it - the boys will love it.
