So one of the things I have looked forward to after finally getting a house was having a vegetable garden. Back in February we started planting in our dirt backyard (yes, we have a garden but still no grass! Someday...). We planted watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, zucchini, bell peppers, tomatoes, radishes, and one mystery plant (the verdict is still out on that one, I will keep you posted). It has truly been the best family project. The kids love to be out there poking around and Randy is reliving his childhood growing up on a farm. I find a lot of happiness knowing that we are growing cheap, organic, healthy snacks for all of the little munchkins running underfoot! Here are some pics of our successes:

Watermelon....this one was picked a little too early but we are still proud of it!
Did you know that green bell peppers turn red when left too long on the plant? Yum!
