We are a young couple remodeling our first house...one outdated / ugly thing at a time. This blog documents our remodel projects and ideas.


Garden Update

It has been a little over a month since I planted my garden, which is actually a container garden on the back patio. And to my complete surprise, everything I planted is growing and actually producing vegetables. Woo hoo! So I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pictures to document this monumental moment.

On this side of the patio I have 4 pepper plants, broccoli, and eggplant. And the squash seems to be taking over:

That squash plant was so small when I got it. Now I have 5 little squash growing:

I used to be able to fit everything along the same side; however, with the monster squash plant, I moved the cucumber bush and tomato plants to the other side of the patio. There are about 7 tomatoes growing right now!

Pardon the finger in the way
 We will be dining on fresh veggies in no time. I am excited that my first garden is actually still alive and growing. One final picture and a question. These little guys popped up in the back corner of the yard. Do you think it is pumpkin or some sort of melon?

Guess grandma was right about that Saturday being a good day to plant.

You go girl! That bottom picture might be pumpkins, but it could also be a weed. ;)
