Our family started our first vegetable garden this year and although the spring started out cold and wet and nothing seemed to want to grow, after just a few days of summer sunshine and warmer temps our garden burst into life!
This is Faith's sugar pie pumpkin plant. Yep, that is just one plant!
Do you know what plant this flower blooms from? An eggplant!
Yellow summer squash!
My kids love beets. I know, they're weird!
Kids eat more vegetables when they grow them! Try it. Oh yeah, and my daughter says her favorite chore is weeding!
The jury is still out on the Topsy Turvy tomato planter. My poor plant spends all it's time trying to be upright.
I planted this tomato plant at the same time as the Topsy Turvy. He seems happier, don't you think?
Almost knee-high by the 13th of July? Hummm....
Baby fennel is so cute! I have no idea what I'll do with it when it grows up.
Did you know that chives deter aphids? I planted several plants in my rose garden. Plus, they are great on baked potatoes and come back year after year!
What's your favorite vegetable to grow? I'm already planning for next year...
