Garden


My Los Angeles style garden has again been started with hopefully more success than last summer. (All the plant died from lack of sun, or at least that's what I'm telling myself.) When parents came out for graduation my mom and I went to the nursery and got some plants. I had been wanting to try my gardening skills again but just hadn't had time. But now with graduation behind me I have lots of spare time. Here are some pictures of the plants when I first planted them vs. a couple of weeks later.

Little cucumber blossoms


tomato
You can even see the blossoms on the second one


My baby tomatoes with blossoms (sorry it's a little blurry)


zucchini
Can't wait for this one



green pepper, basil, oregano
I even got to use the herbs in spaghetti sauce on Sunday




left over flower seeds from Jessica's Relief Society lesson

I think the plants like a deck that actually gets sun because they've grown quite a bit since I planted them. My camera is kind of on the blink so I don't have as many pictures as I would like.

My tomato plants even have a couple of small green tomatoes on them. Hooray! Now if only the bugs on my cucumber plant would go away. I tried soapy water, hopefully that'll work. Any other suggestions?

Stay tuned for more pictures and hopefully more vegetables!
