How Does Your Garden Grow?

I've always wanted to plant my own vegetable garden.... and so I decided to go for it. I told Josh in the beginning that I would be thrilled even to get just one vegetable to grow, since I have no clue what I am doing.

So, here is how it started.... a BIG pile of dirt - of which
Will played on for a few days before I started...

Then I tilled and planted...with Will's help from
his plastic rake :)!
I planted pumpkin, eggplant, carrots, squash & zucchini.

And here is my trusty sidekick. I always tell him he's my big helper... and so yesterday when we filled up the pitcher to water the garden - Will yelled, "Thanks for the water mommy... you're my good helper!"

Here are the plants getting larger.

Here is the tomato plant my mother-in-law gave me. It is growing roma tomatoes on the right and big boy tomatoes on the left.... kind of nice, although it was a surprise.

And...TA-DA! The first two veggies I picked. They are the summer squash.
I read on the internet that you should pick them between
4-6 inches long - as they taste the best that way. (or so they say!)

So, Mom are you proud!!! :)

OH MY WORD! That is so awesome, that gives me encouragment... I am going to try and do that myself. I have been wanting to do that for some time now... but that makes me all the more eager. SO, how did the squash taste?
