Growing Right Along...

Our garden is coming right along, even the broken pepper plant that I spoke of in my previous post. It seems to have bounced right back and is flourishing now. These pictures were made June 19, and since then everything is even bigger. We now have some tiny little Roma tomatoes on most of our four plants, and there are several decent-sized Celebrity Hybrids. We've already picked and used lots of basil & thyme, and last night we ate the first of our jalapenos with tacos. It's exciting to actually get to eat what you've worked hard at growing!

Casualty in the Garden

Not sure who the offender was, but one of our serranos was broken when we went out to check on the garden this afternoon. Bummer! Maybe it will still live...

Fittonia "Pink Star"

My attempts at gardening are moving indoors! I've never had much success with houseplants, but I decided to try again. Husband & I picked up this pretty pink & green plant at Home Depot last weekend. I re-potted it and placed it in its new home that Sunday. I really like it and hope it survives! If it does, I think I'm going to get another one to go in my window at work.

Herb Progress

Most of our herbs are doing great! We've already used the basil & thyme a few times, and they are both just growing like crazy. Here's a pic taken on June 1st.

You'll notice I added some cilantro to the mix. I planted that on May 29th, and it's doing OK...not as great as I had hoped. Maybe it will perk up soon. We use more cilantro than anything else, but I've never had success in growing it myself.
