More Garden

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE having a garden?!?! This year was my trial year...I wasn't exactly sure that my spacing was what it should be (with some veggies it's fine, others, not so much) I wasn't sure if things were going to grow, but I wanted to give it a shot. I have to say that it has been so much fun! Everything, except for my chives (?!?!) has grown so well...and my watermelon, a little too well! I have used fresh cilantro and jalapenos for my salsa, lettuce for burgers, cucumbers for our fourth of July bbq and strawberries for a sweet treat.

The garden (notice the watermelon...it's HUGE!):
Jalapenos:



The bell peppers look so good!

The tomatoes are starting to change color:


Some more cucs on the vine:


Just about ready...maybe in tonight's salad...

My first two cucumbers and first tomato...yes, I picked it too early, I was just excited :)

Our chives wouldn't grow either Jodie! Everything else has grown like crazy, but not them. I am not the best grower person, so I was very comforted to hear about your chive troubles as well :)!
