I am shocked and pleased to tell you that I have veggies in my garden! Yes. I do.
Little green cherry tomatoes. Little tiny green peppers. And a little tiny jet star tomato just starting to grow.
Of course they aren't ripe yet or ready to pick. But they are coming! Yes they are.
I am obsessed with my garden. I go out at least 3 times a day and study my little plants. I look for new growth. I admire the growth that has already started. I stand back and admire my work. Because you know - I have never had a garden. And it's so cool! I love it. Why didn't I do this before? It really wasn't hard and I am so very proud. Like a proud mama.
Never mind - that I don't even LIKE tomatoes. That doesn't matter. Nope. It's just the fact that I am growing my own food in my own yard for my family. Wow. That is a great feeling.
There is still nothing happening with my cucumbers and squash. But people tell me they will come later. I can't wait!
And that's my garden update. Why not try to grow your own? You can do it!
