I've got a green thumb!!!





I am seriously beyond pleased with myself...

Last year we grew some tomatoes and they did really well... it gave me the confidence to grow a bigger garden this year. So this year we planted a ton of stuff- pumpkin, melons, strawberries, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. They've all taken off so well!!! The watermelon is really slow to grow, but in the past week it's doubled in size. The pumpkin and cantaloupe are taking over the area where they're growing and the pepper plants are HUGE! I was so excited to notice a ton of peppers on our plants the other day. Our tomato plant (a "Mr. Stripey") is doing GREAT... I think these tomatoes are so pretty and I hear they're really tasty.

So anyways, I know not too many care about my garden update, but this is what you get for now! I'll have some pics of the boys up later tonight or tomorrow!
