A Little Dirt Doesn't Hurt

We decided to step up our game with our gardening this year. We were lucky enough to come away with a few tomatoes last year after our poor attempt at keeping the one stalk alive. The few tomatoes, however, gave us a little courage to go a little bigger this year. Bigger as in, garden box, bigger.

Last year, we were a little late in getting our hands in the dirt. This year, we were bound to do a better job with the timeline. We had our garden box together weeks before we even planted our humble garden. The garden box was surprisingly easy to put together. Jeremy even trusted me with the drill!

I only included this pic because it cracks me up

Mid-April rolled around and we finally got our vegetable plants in the ground. We filled our box with soil, planting our Heirloom and Roma tomatoes, green and red bell peppers, cucumbers, squash and zucchini. We also put some watermelon seeds in the back row but sadly, nothing has come up. We're a little nervous about that one. 

We've enjoyed watching our garden grow over the weeks. We've got a ton of Roma tomatoes on the vine waiting for them to ripen. Our bell pepper buds are small and delicate but we've got to be patient while they grow into their shape. The cucumber has taken over the garden latching onto our poor red peppers and growing all over the place. The zucchini and cucumber have a ton of blooms. We're just waiting for the squash to catch up. 

We hope to have plenty of vegetables in the next month! If you're nice, maybe we'll share :)
