I'm so excited!!

These are a few pics of the 'fruit' of my garden. For many years, I never thought I would have what it took to manage a garden, let alone be able to grow anything on my own...but here it is! I will do my best not to bore you anymore with my garden (you might be in luck due to the fact that growing will slow in fall anyway).
So, the first pic is my sunflower that grew from seeds from a Burgerville kids meal kit (which is now taller than I am), the second is the peas and cucumbers from Burgerville also, and the third pic is box 1 (of 2) of my 2006 garden project. Thanks for being a part of my gardening fun! I might post one or two more pictures of my pumpkins once they come in...and maybe my lettuce,...we'll see how it goes!

Yeah Robin, that is wonderful!!! There is something about being able to eat what you plant that is really exciting, good luck with the rest of it. (By the way, I don't think the pictures are boring, I love seeing garden pictures do you have raised beds?) Wonderful!

When are we going to have a home grown salad? I hope the lettuce is crunchy. Guys like crunchy lettuce. Gals like wimpy lettuce. (I hope it's crunchy)

Go Green-thumb,it's your birhtday! Isn't that one of the most satisefying things, to get to eat a salad, (or whatever) that you grew in your little garden with your own two hands?! Yummy!
