Contaner Garden Update: Fresh Veggies


I'm finally starting to get to enjoy some fresh veggies from our container garden. Just over a week ago I was able to pick my first tomato. And then this weekend these were finally ready to be picked: a bell pepper, two tomatoes, 4 jalapenos and 5 cherry tomatoes. I ate fresh tomato slices on my sandwich for lunch today. So delicious. I'm thinking about planting some lettuce and spinach seeds soon so I can enjoy those this fall. I love being able to walk onto my back deck and pick fresh veggies.

I SO wanted to do on of these gardens. Even though I have over an acre of land I could put veggies in.. but I can't even get around to doing a potted garden :(

I just did tomatoes the first year. Then last year I didn't plant anything and really regretted it. It's been fun to try new things this year.

We have gotten our first tomatoes from our garden too. PLus some lettuce and onions. It tastes better if it is homegrown! But maybe that's because I appreciate it more if I have to work for it.
