Garden Update

How are you this lovely Tuesday?! This past week we spent a little bit of money on our garden buying tomato cages and trellises.  Even though it sucked dropping even more money at that dang Lowe’s, I know we will be happy we did when we have vegetables coming out of our ears in a month or two.

Here are some before and pics of what our garden looked like a month ago.  It has been fun and very rewarding watching and seeing the progress.

The first pic is what the garden looked like BEFORE we planted anything.  The next pic is what the garden looked like after we planted everything a month ago…..and the last pic is what our garden currently looks like now.  Crazy how fast things change and grow in just a short amount of time.

Just a few weeks ago, I was ecstatic because I could see our beets barely peeping through the dirt.  Now, they are about 3-4 inches tall and I even had to thin them out…that just broke my heart.

This is the same part of our garden.  The tomato, pepper, and jalapeno plants are kickin’ butt…..even the onions are growing like weeds 🙂

We not only grow veggies, but we also have some herbs.  We have oregano, basil, thyme, cilantro, and rosemary.  We have already used quite a bit of cilantro and basil.

Look at that tomato! Who knew a garden could bring such happiness?! I can’t wait to enjoy the fruits of this labor.

These trellises are for our green beans to grow up…..  IMG_0269

Question: How should we use our oregano? We can only think of spaghetti sauce…
