Veggies are coming

Our new vegetable garden is now planted. It was pretty easy and actually didn't take very long. Now for the hard part --- waiting for all the yummy veggies to come!

This year we planted all kinds of things. Some came from seed, some from the nursery, and surprisingly enough some from the compost pile! We are (attempting to) grow:

  • tomatoes (yellow pear, red cherry, and a mystery type that sprouted from the compost heap),
  • bell peppers (yellow, red, and green),
  • hot peppers (jalapeno, serrano, habanero, and kung pao --- we like it hot and spicy!),
  • cucumbers,
  • mystery melon (again from the compost pile, we think it is cantaloupe),
  • eggplant,
  • squashes (yellow crookneck, green zucchini, and gray zucchini), and
  • various types of greens.
I wonder if that's enough... Ha! Here are some prize specimens:
Newly sprouted zucchini seedlings all straight in a row.Our very first bell pepper, still a bit on the small side.
Now if we can just keep from killing them...
