And we’ve got life!!!

So, after our last garden failure a few years ago, today I am pleased to report…WE HAVE LIFE in this year’s garden!!! Hurray! Last time around, despite planting a wide variety of seeds, we only grew one measly tomato (that then fell on the ground and proceeded to rot). This time around we only decided to grow four things: Cantaloupe, squash, tomatoes, and radishes. Instead of planting directly into our soil (which we have now figured out is not the greatest quality), we planted in a raised bed. We have seen a huge difference this time around!

Here’s the first sprouts of this year’s garden popping up!

The first sprouts have sprung!

Now a month or so later, we are so very tickled to announce….our squash have their very first flower, which means, the squash are soon to follow! Check it out!

Here's the very first squash blossom!

It’s been wonderful to watch our garden grow (and continue to grow) this time around. We can’t wait to taste the food from our family’s very first harvest! It’s looking like we will have a good amount of squash, which means I’ll have to come up with some tasty squash recipes. If you have any favorite squash recipes, please share! We’d love to add them to our recipe collection!

    • Aww! I’m blessed you classified me as a gardener! This is only our first year of what seems may be a successful garden. I hated gardening as a kid and was terrified to try it as an adult. Our first garden three years ago was a disaster, but, atlas, it looks like this year it may work out! We really don’t have much of a clue of what we are doing in the gardening realm though. Live and learn! Haha!

    • Thanks! We are pretty excited about it! Congrats to you too by the way on your new little life 🙂 I was just thinking about and praying for you at the market this morning!
