A green thumb I certainly am not. I am not the person you call to water your plants when you go away. Case in point, the last week of school my 7 year old went on a field trip. He brought back a biodegradable planter with sunflower seeds planted in it. Over the next two weeks or so it sat on the kitchen window sill and more than a dozen sunflower seedlings sprouted up. Once they were big enough, I planted them outside. The day after, all but two were dead and now only one remains. I'm a plant killer. Which is rather sad because both my mother and grandfather are expert gardeners. (Say hi to my grandpa, he is a daily reader!)
See my problem is I don't like bugs. Or dirt. But I do like fresh organic veggies. So this year I am really trying to suck it up and get some veggies growing. I bought some organic plants from our CSA back in June and surprisingly, I have not killed them yet! In fact, they are doing rather well.
So how does my garden grow?
With bell peppers...
...and cherry tomatoes, all in a row!
I have grown cherry tomatoes for a few years now, but this is my first time with peppers and zucchini. I am really anxious for them to grow and ripen! We also have two apple trees that we planted on Earth Day, but that is a different post for a different day. (Trees are hard).
What are you growing in your garden this summer?
