things are a-growing

The seeds that I’ve sprouted are starting to become big plants and not just baby plants any more. It is so satisfying to see the plants grow from seed. Everything has sprouted now! Below are the cucumber, squash and brandywine heirloom tomatoes:

And the Bibb lettuce sprouts are going crazy still. I’m just hoping it doesn’t get too hot too fast for them otherwise they will bolt too soon!

I bought a couple of plants from the local nursery and planted them in the raised bed. Below are the yellow bell peppers and red bell peppers are already growing like crazy!

And I’ve already planted one of the zucchini sprouts into the garden and it’s growing fast! I can’t wait to have zucchini from my backyard. I’ve never had zucchini bread before . . . You know you’ll see that recipe if I have a plethora of zucchini.


And, as I’ve said before, I would have a whole garden of tomatoes if it was reasonable! These are patio tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes:

It’s amazing to see things growing already. I’m already making plans to install a second raised bed in the fall to be able to grow even more. This gardening thing is kinda addicting!

    Your plants look wonderful! I’m getting there, myself, but I’m trying to whip a flower bed into shape first. I had grand intentions of doing this after we moved into our house last summer, but it was too hot!

    Anyway, I think you will love the zucchini bread! I made it several times last summer with zucchinis from our local farmers market, and we always finished it off in just a few days!

    Looks great! My seeds are all finally sprouting (except for my habaneros!). I’m hoping we sell that shed soon so Jeremy can put my garden there!

    You should do a little tutorial on growing the plants from seeds. I’m curious on the steps you took to get these little guys in the ground. :). THEY LOOK REALLY YUMMY 🙂

      That’s a good idea. I’ll probably do that for the fall garden!
