Fresh from the garden [Aug. 9th, 2005|11:37 am]

This year I made my first attempt at a vegetable garden and here are some photos of what I picked today:

The yellow tomatoes are the first ones picked of what we planted! We've got so many cucumbers and tomatoes we don't know what to do with them all! The peppers we planted are just about ready to be picked and they look so pretty on the plant right now. Food that you grow yourself seems to taste so much better than anything you could buy in the store (plus it's a heck of a lot cheaper too!).

The parsley, basil, and thyme we planted seems to have died. The heat wave we got recently really did them in... and I know it's partly our fault for not having watered them every night like we should have been. Maybe tonight when we water them they'll come back to life a bit... they aren't completely dead yet, but on their way. The cucumbers need water too because some of their leaves are turning brown. Ah well... at least everything is growing quite well still :o)
