Growth in the garden

On Mother's Day, my husband and the boys surprised me by planting all the vegetable and her plants I'd picked out on a trip to Home Depot. Everything is looking good. We've been using the lettuce and herbs and I'm looking forward to zucchini, tomatoes and peppers.

It's time to get some weeding done, although I admit that sometimes I'm not sure what I'm supposed to pull out and what should stay. :) That's why I'm glad we went with mostly plants rather than seeds. The stuff that is sprouting from seeds was just planted a little over a week ago.

Here's a pumpkin after just over a week.

And some forget-me-nots.

Tomato plants are growing wildly.

Zucchini has taken off!
