Anyway, here's some pictures I snapped over the weekend of our progress...
Carnival Sweet Pepper (one of our little seedlings)
Sweet Banana Peppers
Red Onions (we planted a TON of onions)
Mint (aka the "dangerous herb"...because it gets heartier and heartier the more I pick it...that means much mojito drinking for yours truly!)
I have to admit, I felt this great sense of accomplishment once we were done. I know it's just a matter of digging a hole and throwing a plant in and watering it, but it's taken us so long to just get to this point. And it's so nice that we finally have the time to do these things that we've been wanting to do. I'm still nervous as to whether veggies will actually GROW. My anti-green thumb is notoriously bad and I fear for every single plant in the garden, when left under my care. But then I also fear little creatures pillaging our garden while I'm at work, I've even been checking on them each night to make sure no one has made off with a pepper plant or something. So far so good. Keep your fingers crossed folks, this is bound to be a somewhat bumpy ride...but hopefully one with, at the very least, an onion or two at the end of it!
