My Veggie Garden May Soon Be Underway

Had some more help from my personal gardening expert (aka Mom) this weekend. I've finally figured out what will go in my garden:

  • bell peppers

  • tomatoes

  • lettuce

  • carrots

  • green onions

  • cucumbers

  • green beans

  • spinach

  • watermelon

  • cherry tomatoes

  • chili peppers

and where. I'll post a picture after it's all planted.

Some of those things are for fun (watermelon), some are requests from my chef/hubby (chili peppers), and most are to enjoy our own homegrown goodness. I've always wanted to see if I could have a successful garden, so here's hoping!

My parents also gave me a couple of hanging baskets (fuchsias) for my birthday. I love them! I think they look so nice hanging up. One is called "Pink Marshmallow", not sure what the other is (white base with a purple center). I'll post pics soon I hope!

You will be soooo healthy :) I wish I lived near you so I could get your extras!

I just hope I do a good enough job taking care of the garden that there ARE extras! ;)

Wow, your own organic garden! Actually, it's probably a step above since its yours!

The watermelon sounds good especially for the summer. Do you think it'll be ready before the season ends? If not, well, it's just as great anytime.

Oh I have to mention the Gordon Ramsay bio to my husband. He's not much into reading but I think he'll be interested in this one.

Yeah I can't wait to see my bounty!

I hope the watermelon works out. I think what I have is the Sugar Baby variety which SHOULD produce before the season ends, so we'll see. :)

Gordon Ramsay has definitely led a colorful life so far. Your husband might particularly enjoy the time Ramsay spent learning and working in France.
