This past weekend was Jordan’s bachelorette party, and as much as I would love to give you tips on throwing one, it’s not exactly appropriate for all ages. So instead, I’m going to give you a tour of my and Stan’s very first garden!
We have had a ton of cucumbers. So many, they’re dripping over the sides of the wall Stan built!
I picked six just yesterday. We have two varieties: Tendergreen Cucumbers (the larger, skinny ones) and Organic Burpee Pickling Cucumbers (the short fat ones).
The tomatoes have almost completely taken over the garden. For a while, Stan was trimming the tops daily, then he finally gave up after they busted through the netting and broke the plastic tubing. CRAZY.
They, too, are growing over the sides of the wall. We’re also growing two varieties of tomatoes: Abe Lincoln Heirloom and Burpee Baby tomatoes.
Thankfully, I love tomatoes. I’ll eat them like apples. Or as sauce. Or in salads. Or on sandwiches. I hope they ripen soon!
At the very end, we’re growing cantaloupes and two types of watermelon: Charleston Grey and Sugar Baby.
Isn’t the wall beautiful? Stan spent a lot of time on it (I won’t take any of the credit). No sign of any cantaloupes yet, but we do have a few watermelons growing:
This is the biggest watermelon we have yet. I think it’s a Sugar Baby. After taking this photo, I backed up and narrowly avoided this dude jumping on my face:
Stick bug, maybe? Imagine that thing jumping on my head. I would have screamed like a crazy person!
That’s it for the garden tour! We’ve only been able to eat the cucumbers so far, but it’s a surreal experience eating something we’ve grown from a seed. I can’t wait for tomatoes!
