Reaping the Harvest

This year, my hubby and I wanted to plant a small garden. We had big plans for cucumbers, tomatos, squash, zucchini, peppers, carrots, and beans. The thought of being able to walk outside, mid-summer, and pick fresh produce from my very own garden was so exciting.

Well, that dream never came true. One thing or another happend, time got away from us, and it became too late in the season to plant our little garden.

However, we did manage to plant two pepper plants and seven tomato plants and we are finally starting to see some results.

Looks like weeds, but these are tomato plants!
Nuturing these little plants to grow by watering them daily and weeding them out has been very enjoyable. Then, seeing the product start to grow has been so rewarding. I truly never thought I would enjoy gardening this much. Looking forward to giving our little garden a try again next summer...and trying early!

Now I just have to figure out when the best time to pick peppers off their plant is and then start eating them! Yum!

Did you plant a garden this summer? If so, what did you plant and have you been able to enjoy any of the harvest yet?
