How Does My Garden Grow

I never thought I would be writing about me growing anything other then weeds. But this year I decided to try my hands at growing vegetables and tomatoes. We planted tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, snap peas, and flowers in pots this year.



             


So far so good. My snap peas are hanging in there, after a scary battle with Cookie. I thought they were died, but I saw some peas on the plant yesterday. The bottom of the plant is still fighting and I hope the plant stays alive long enough to finish producing the peas. 

I just transferred the tomatoes and carrots to pots outside. We will see if I can keep them alive and healthy.  I plan to transfer the bell peppers at the beginning of next week to pots outside. Just maybe I might have a little of my mom and grandpa's green thumb. I think my mom could make something grow out of rock. She is that good with getting things to grow.

Virginia also got to plant something this year. At her speech class they planted a few seeds in a cup and got to bring it home. Her teachers were not sure what the seeds were so we will be surprised once they fully grow. I picked up a small clay pot for her to paint and we transferred her plant yesterday into the pot. 






I can't wait to see if we are able to harvest any vegetables or tomatoes this year. Also some flowers have bloomed around the mailbox and around the big bush in our front yard that Meredith and Donnie planted the previous owners of our house. And the flowers that my parents gave me actually are growing strong. I can't wait to see them when they bloom. So slowly our front yard is starting to look pretty good.
