How does your Garden Grow?

How does your garden grow?  We are 5 weeks in with our outdoor garden.  It has already been such a great experience for the boys having something to tend to daily.  They are quite entertained with all that goes into watching our garden grow and transform.

My mom decided to send me a few herbs last week. I asked her to keep an eye out for cilantro and she brought me five pots of goodies.  I love the light that enters our kitchen window and decided this would make the perfect indoor herb garden spot.  I also grabbed the last two chevron tins from the Target dollar spot and have been trying to figure out what I was going to do with them.  With a few holes made on the bottom they are now the home for my oregano.  The Cilantro and Basil needed bigger homes so they where transplanted into the gray pots.

It rained during the night, so I went to check on the garden and make sure everything survived the crazy wind that kept me up  most of the early hours of the morning.  Besides the dirt everywhere,  I was quite surprised to  see my first fruits on my Tygress.

Squeal…  I am so excited to see these babies pop up.  There are actually three but the third is so tiny and more towards the top.

My only concern now is the threat of dear getting to them.  In the past 3 years they have been deathly afraid to walk on the black top surrounding our garden.  I am getting a little concerned they will see this vegetation and lose fear of the black top.  I am crossing my fingers they stay back and aren’t tempted.  I may have to put up a shield if I see any get too close.

And the cucumber plant  is very ready for my trellis installation.  I didn’t anticipate them going so wild, so quickly.  I have yet to see any bee’s around, which is worrying me just a bit.  We need pollination.

Not to bad for a first time garden, huh?  What are you growing, how does your garden grow?
