How Does Your Garden Grow? Quite Well!

IMG_3364 It was too early to plant a garden before we left for Africa and a little late when we returned. Because of that, I cheated and bought a couple plants from our local greenhouse that were already started and others we bought seeds. But started from plants or seeds, this is our first garden ever and I’m pretty proud.

We planted:

  • Green Pepper
  • Green Zucchini
  • Yellow Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Radishes
  • Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Red Leave Lettuce
  • Green Beans
  • Yellow Beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Herbs (Basil, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, Parsley)

Tip for Seed Planting: the instructions on the seed package about planting rows # apart etc. have that there for a reason. Our radishes are planted too close together and zucchini – wow, they’re getting big…the plants I mean!!



Gotta love diapers drying in the sun, a growing garden and cutie littles!

Every day Chloe and John help water the garden and exclaim with excitement as they watch as the garden plants grown and begin to produce! We’ve talked about what the vegetables will look like when they are ready to be harvested and about the fact that there is no picking without mommy or daddy!! {We’ve already harvested one pepper and a green tomato…}

Are you a gardener? What is your favorite thing to plant?


  1. Hi, beautiful garden! Adorable little ones! My husband has a large garden this year with lots of veggies, herbs, berries, and zinnias. Right now I have way more cucumbers and basil than I can use! But what a delightful “problem” to have! It’s nice to share with neighbors. Next week I’m taking a class on making and canning (safely!) tomato salsa.
