I am so happy. The last few days I have been able to pick some tomatoes out of our garden. They took forever to ripen and my mouth has been watering all summer waiting for them to turn red. I also picked some corn today for dinner. We kind of went crazy with our garden this year and planted a good variety of things: Carrots, Cucumbers, Radishes(I hate radishes-but joe wanted to try them), Onions, Corn, Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Cantaloupe and Watermelon and Strawberries. Everything has grown well, except the carrots are a bit small and ofcourse the strawberries won't produce until next year. Its been really nice not to have to buy much from the produce isle. (just salad and apples/bananas) Joe wants to grow twice as much next year. We always try something new each time and learn what not to do the next go around. Maybe our next house will have a few fruit trees and spot already reserved for a garden. I would love to have peaches or apricots. Wishful thinking but can you blame me-we are forever a greenthumb family now.
