More Veggies

I have now bought seeds for everything that will go in my garden and these are the veggies that I have decided to add: cucumbers, zucchini and okra. Check out what they are suppose to look like. I also plan on planting a regular yellow squash and a pickling cucumber. I think my eyes are bigger than my ability to grow things, but it will fun to try.

Tomato plants

I didn't have this picture when I posted about my tomato plants earlier, but this is the packet of seeds that I got. It is called the Burpee best in show tomato packet and it grows five different tomato plants. These are what they will look like if my plan is a success. Also I bought a packet of pattypan squash seeds today that should look like this when they grow. These are the "suppose to" pictures so I'll have to compare them to what actually comes out of my garden this summer. I can't wait!

Let your garden grow!

I couldn't help but share this picture since Carrie B. has started blogging about her veggie CSA for this year. My goal is to grow some of my own food this year. Clark is getting a tiller and I'm going to have a garden. This is a picture of the tomato plants that I have already started from seeds. So far they look pretty good. They will go into the ground in the middle of April. I'm not sure what plants I have because I bought a multi seed packet with five different varities of tomato seeds. All of the planets are unique though and not something you would normally find at the grocery store or a farmers market. One of the plants is a white cherry tomato called an Italian Ice tomato. I'm looking forward to seeing what different things I can grow. I also plan to grow a spineless orka and pattypan squash. I can't wait. I will certainly blog about things as they "grow" :)

Here are some pictures I took of Abbey and her great grandmothers.

The Grocery Game

I saw this on GMA this morning and I remember trying this before but it really didn't work for me at the time. Now that I'm home (at least for a couple more weeks) and have time to really work at it I thought I might try it again. Has anyone had success with this in the past or is still having success?
