Mary, Mary, quite contrary...

... how does your garden grow?

We've got tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and some peppers! I really have to admit, I didn't think this garden thing was going to work out in our favor. I have never had a green thumb. I'm pretty sure I've even killed plants that people told me were indestructible. Looks like that's not the case anymore! I cannot be more excited! I'm just thinking of all the wonderful veggies we're going to have soon. Of course, I'm a little sad the cantaloupe and the watermelon didn't work out. I just don't think the garden was big enough and it turned into survival of the fittest. The veggies won.

Seriously, the tomatoes are almost baseball-size. The cucumbers are about six inches long and still growing. The peppers are done flowering and you can actually see that there are more than just green leaves. This is just too exciting!

Yay, yay, yay! Looks like we really will be able to expand the garden next year and maybe throw in some other veggies and try the fruit again.
