This year I planted tons of different kinds of peppers (my favorite veggie of all time), some onions, tomatoes, cat nip, cantaloupe, watermelon, and pumpkins. It's so fulfilling to eat what you grow. I get jealous of my sister-in-law in Florida because she can grow stuff year round!
Last year I built my veggie garden walls (went to home depot and found it all myself!) It sadly wasn't a very successful year last year because of the late May freeze which killed a lot of what I had. But this year is a different story!
Here is May:
And this was today:
|It's so hot, you can see the haze!|
And here are a few more pictures:
|Some jalapenos : )|
|A little bell pepper : )|
|This is only about 1/3 of the pumpkin plant!|

We also have a huge window box in the front of our house. I never plant perennials there because I like to have a different look every year. That has changed way more than I realized too.
And here was today:
When it comes to gardening, I still don't really know what I'm doing. I like the whole...'figure it out as you go' sort of thing. Most of the time it works out.
Today was one of those great, productive, happy days. I did most of the things on my to do list, spent time outside, and avoided doing dishes : ) Instead I am sitting here, listening to some Bon Iver and drinking cheap wine in a questionably clean glass. Good start to a Friday night if you ask me!
