See how our garden grows

This year, we planted a modest garden, but more ambitious than last year wherein we planted 4 tomato plants and wound up with enough tomatoes to feed the neighborhood. This time we cordoned off a small section of our backyard and planted:

1 Beefsteak Tomato
2 Grape Tomato
1 Green Bell Pepper
3 Green Bean
3 Lettuce
3 Broccoli

I was all excited to see how we would do. While we were waiting patiently, I noticed that somebody with a cotton tail and a cute face was nibbling on our plants. Thus, we erected a rabbit fence, and now all is well.

Our tomatoes and peppers are either starting to come in or are at least blossoming. We've already harvested some green beans, and they were delicious. Score on that. We're not entirely sure what's happening with the broccoli, but we're keeping an eye on it. AND, the other day we harvested some lettuce. *stupendous* It is so, so good. We're big salad eaters. Next year we're talking about trying sweet banana peppers (Hank suggested those; he likes those at Nana's house), carrots, and snow peas. Now this is something about summer that I can get behind :)
