vegetable garden.

This year we bought a house, one thing Chase was most excited for was that we could could do what we wanted with the yard. One of the first things we did was dig up the dirt and make a garden box.... so we could plant our very own vegetable garden.

Now that you've seen what it used to look like, here it is currently:
I took this picture of Chase "harvesting" through the window, he didn't know I was watching him.
We planted so many yummy things! Corn, Carrots, Peas, Peppers, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Squash, Tomatoes and Cherry tomatoes, Watermelon, Honeydew, Cantaloupe as well as Raspberries, Strawberries & Blackberries!! The berries are in their own row outside of the garden box to the left. My favourites and most often consumed were the tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.

Some of our harvest that day, perhaps our zucchini's a a tad overgrown!
Our garden was a little overgrown- perhaps when we planted it we didn't follow the directions with the seeds. We kept thinking that we weren't putting enough seeds in and we'd add a few extra here and there... and boy oh boy! It sure did grow and grow and grow!! The picture up there doesn't even show how big it really got.

I'm excited to continue to eat our veggies and to do it all again next year!!
Xoxo, Brittany
