Vegetable Garden

Our vegetable garden is already looking a lot better than last year. All we got last year was a  handful of tomatoes. Everything else either died or was eaten by chipmunks. (I am using chipmunk repelent this year.) I put a lot of work into the garden so I really hope we get vegetables this year.

I had a pretty good adoption/gardening analogy in my head, but then I spent two hours outside with the kids and it's 92 degrees out.....so my brain isn't working. All I can think about is how I would do anything for a nap right now.

Here are the pictures of our garden:

This cucumber plant is getting very long!

  2. "All I can think about is how I would do anything for a nap right now." Sounds like your garden is already preparing you for new motherhood!

    I'm very curious about what excactly chipmunk repellant is...

  6. Those vegetables are looking pretty good - although I suspect the eggplant and pepper could use some feeding. :-) Good luck with it all- a great start!

    And yeah, I do a lot of gardening and my partner is a heirloom gardening expert who brought some 600 packs of veg seeds with her when we got together. ;-) The veg part of my websites are here if you're interested. http://www.beginner-gardening.com/vegetablegardening.html

  7. Gotta say - I'm jealous! I've been planning on doing my gardening for awhile now. Had peppers last year. Got nothing going yet this year. Maybe this will give me that kick in the butt I need! :)
