My Garden Grows

My garden is growing! Yes, you'll remember, this is my first year -ever- of having a garden. It's growing! We made the garden and it took a while, and we were about a month and a half behind, so my plants aren't quite where they should be for this time of year, but still...I'm so excited! The tomatoes are green...but they are growing, and there are a lot of them--both on the normal plant and on the heirloom tomato plant (and right after I planted them, they looked like death, but they've made a great comeback). The zucchini is finally growing. The cucumber plant looks great and I'm sure one day soon an actual cucumber is going to appear. The beats are delicious (we've already cooked a couple up). The carrots are growin, and the pumpkins will be here for sure soon! My herb garden (in the planter box) is looking great and I can't wait to get some fresh pesto made from the basil. I have a good recipe that calls for sage too that I'll be making soon with the fresh sage.

Next year I can't wait to see where we'll be at by this time in the summer and I'm looking forward to trying a few other veggies---like broccoli and maybe even cauliflower!
