What's Growing

Remember back when we dug up our front yard, Cosmo helped, and we found the canning jar top? Well it's finally a productive piece of dirt that is filling up our fridge.

Currently growing:
>tomatoes
>cucumbers
>eggplant
>watermelon
>cantaloupe
>squash
>bell peppers
>zinnias

We've nicknamed the tomatoes 'tarantulas' because they are taking over anything they can, but when they are as sweet as any other fruit, who can complain? We got two zucchinis out of the squash plants before they bit the dust because I failed to get mulch under them before the rain came. They rotted out so the survivors are getting plenty of TLC. Our little watermelon is chugging along. And the cucumbers are forcing me to research how to make pickles, because these things are EVERYWHERE.
