This week has been very special for Josh and I, 3 years ago we were getting married!!!! Yesterday was our actual Anniversary!!!! So happy end of 3rd beginning of year 4 to my wonderful, loving and supportive husband!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so blessed to have found you, I can't wait for the rest of our lives, just hope it doesn't go to fast!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this week I wanted to show the progress of the GIANT garden that Josh and I planted. My very first post I showed you a picture of it and I look back and everything was tiny! Like really really tiny!! Josh and I check on it just about everyday and it seems like things grow daily! So far the garden hasn't been to much work, you do have to keep up with the weeds and water and fertilize but it isn't that bad... except bugs... and by this I mean Colorado Potato Bugs... they are and will forever be the death of my potatoes.
Besides that everything else has grown like ten times bigger than it was to begin with! The before picture was taking Memorial Day weekend and the after picture was taking last night, so in four weeks this is what it looks like!!
As you can see we have added climbing posts for the beans and peas, and everything that I had planted by seed that was just poking through is giant, at least to me, it still has a good ways to go! So I took some close ups of everything but the cucumbers... somehow I missed them! But I thought I would share them with you guys!! As of today, I have about 20 baby tomatoes, six baby green peppers ( I planted red & yellow too) and what seems like hundreds of blooms of cucumbers, yellow squash and zucchini! My onions are just about ready to be dried and stored just waiting for them to be fully brown and fall over, the beets are getting big you can see them if you get really really close and my carrots are about half an inch thick!!!
Enjoy the pictures!!

This is the best shot that I could get of my baby peppers, not so small any more, this one is almost the size of my fist so in about a week I will have a fresh green pepper!!! Some of the tomatoes are about golf ball size so they have a couple weeks to go! I am super excited about all these fresh veggies!!
Thanks again for reading!! Josh is traveling out of town tomorrow so you can probably guess what my next project is!!!! Yes painting! Two rooms this time! Also, going to be spending some quality time with my wonderful Niece and Nephew! Can you say party while the parents are out!! Yeah like a veggie tales party they are 4 and 6! But I love them to death!!!! So much fun! Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Please feel free to give me any garden advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!
