The coolest part of the whole experience is when you not only see the plants grow, but when a real vegetable actually forms out of the leaves. I can successfully say that we have one developing yellow pepper and the start of a jalapeno! The cucumbers are growing like crazy and budding, but no actual cucumbers yet.
I'm pretty proud of the success that we've had so far, especially for a first year garden. I'm excited to see what else can happen in another month.
In other news, you might notice the black hose around the garden in the top picture. Thanks to an engineer boyfriend, we have a new watering system. More on that development in the next post!
