Fresh Veggies

>> Wednesday, July 13, 2011

The hubs and I started a vegetable garden last summer and we had such great results that we decided to build another bed and do it again this year.

Last summer we had:

  • 4 squash plants

  • 1 zucchini plant

  • lettuce

  • radishes

This summer we planted:

  • Watermelon

  • 2 cucumber plants

  • 2 banana pepper plants

  • cherry tomatoes

  • Beef tomatoes

  • Squash

We have gotten a ton of cherry tomatoes and the peppers and cucumbers are just now producing a ton of veggies.

Here is the latest off of my plants:

Operation Summer Sprucing of Front Porch- Semi Complete!

  • Swept and washed down the porch.

  • Scrubbed the white banisters with soapy water (banisters are not seen in picture).

  • Bought the fern at Lowes for $7

  • Found the pot at Marshalls for $7 and this weekend I plan on finding a flowering plant to go in it.

  • The American Flag Star- I fell in love with the star! I found it at Kohls on clearance for $ what?! Yep...I really love it (did I say that already?) and I think I may keep it up most of the summer!

Here you go!
