I've never grown anything edible before, so I am fascinated by my new little garden. I go out and look at it constantly, mostly to marvel but also to be on the lookout for hornworms!

So I was tickled pink to come home from DC and find that my little buds and marble-sized peppers had turned into this:


Four on one little plant! How is it standing under all that weight? And the little pepper that I took a photo of a month ago?


He's red! He's still only the size of a golfball though. But this farmer thing is addictive.

We have a garden. Sadly, it's not thriving as well as we'd hoped. Okay, not at all, but mom's is so I still have my source of fresh veggies for the summer. We didn't plant much, but our bowl full of grape tomatoes and three cucumbers has made us kind of giddy.

It is fun, isn't it!
I have a small garden as well, not a GIANT one that I grew up with, but we really enjoy it.
Not a huge harvest, but worth it.
Cute little peppers!
