I love my little container garden...
it doesn't take long to water, I don't get any weeds,
and the animals in the yard don't bother with it
- I don't know why -
I water it most days, but if I don't get outside early, the hubs does it.
We both enjoy watering it and watching it grow,
waiting and watching for all the little surprises it brings.
When the time comes,
it feels good to go outside and pick some tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers,
come indoors and make a fresh salad, you can't get any fresher than that.
This is it, I also have one summer squash that is planted in the ground.
5 vegetable plants and one pot of herbs on the end.
- we have a lot of little ones -
- everything is still green, but there are a lot coming -
- there must be 25 cucumbers on this plant, it won't be long now -
The markets in my area have amazing produce that they grow themselves.
There are plenty of them and their prices are good.
But there is something about growing it yourself...starting with a seed,
fast forward to eating a homegrown tomato or cucumber,
there's nothing like it.
So what about you guys, have you planted a summer vegetable garden?
Is it starting to bare fruit?
