Our First Garden

Ok, as you have found out in the post about my mom's visit, she helped us out in starting our very first garden. I haven't been very good about taking pictures of it to see the stages. I went ahead and took some finally because all of the sudden we have tomatoes!
These are the cherry tomatoes.....YUM.
Here is the whole garden and this was taken on June 9th. I'll post new pictures of it soon cause this is small compared to now and I actually thought this was big. HA!
Ok, this one is of the pumpkins. They are the 2 plants on either side of the tomato bucket. We are so excited about this cause Daisy had got into the garden one time and I found the seeds dug up. I stuck them right back in the ground hope full and yes, 3 of the 4 mounds we planted now are growing pumpkin plants.
This is a tomato on the big boy tomato plant. I can' wait to put one of these on a burger!!! Now, you have to understand the excitement we have about this journey. We are NOT farmers, gardeners or even good with plants. Ok, well at least I don't think I am. Well, I have been keeping some plants alive that Kim gave me around the holidays and wow, that has been a shock. Now to actually be tending a garden and we are producing food, WOW this is crazy! Oh yea and we have got about 6 strawberries off our plants and are awaiting about 4 blue berries that are so cute, but so green for now. How exciting it is to know you have grown some of your own food and I look forward to canning a ton of it.
