Garden time!

I got a job today!! Yay!! I'm pretty excited about it because I'll be working with plants!! My favorite!

So speaking of plants, Levi ran around town all weekend getting me a variety of plants to put in our very small garden. I decided I would like to have a garden this summer being it looks like we will be here for a bit longer. With my luck I'll put hours of work into my plants and right before it's time to start harvesting someone will buy our place. Just wait, it's bound to happen. :)

So Levi tilled up a small patch for me last weekend and I planted my plants this afternoon. This is what I planted:
6 Better Boy tomatoes
4 Roma tomatoes
6 Bell peppers
2 Cayenne peppers
1 Jalapeno pepper 
2 Eggplants
1 Cantaloupe
1 Watermelon
12 Marigolds

I think that will be plenty for this tiny family. With all those tomatoes the cat and dog might have to start eating them too! And those plants don't include what I have growing in pots around the house (a few herbs, more tomatoes, and lettuce). I still have onion sets to plant and I would like to plant potatoes and cucumbers. We'll see if Levi is willing to give me a little more space ;)

So now to maximize the use of our garden I should really learn how to can this fall so I can make tomato sauces and salsas! I guess we'll see what I have time for!
