On a lighter note...

It is that time of year again. Time to be bored by the daily updates of Sarah Kate's vegetable garden. Almost as exciting as watching grass grow! For those of you who remain faithful viewers through the entire gardening season, I offer you a reward, a prize, if you will. Fresh vegetables! Now, don't get all excited, if you don't live in St. Louis, you don't qualify. (Annie Buckles, you are the only exception. You always qualify.) I usually end up with more than I can eat, so I'll let you know what I have extra on a weekly basis. Do not expect payoff until August.
Anyway, I've been trying to get these vegetables in the ground all week, but I've been so busy. I finally got almost everything planted. What you see are Roma and Marglobe tomatoes, okra and gypsy peppers (I'll have to give some to Gypsy!). What you can't see are the edamame (better known as Japanese soybeans), bok choy, swiss chard, carrots and another kind of tomato called Big Boy. We have not yet planted watermelon or squash, because we need to warm up the soil a little bit. Matt and I also underestimated the amount of fence we would need. I know what you are thinking, why didn't they measure? Because that would be the smart thing to do.
Photo number two here is the herbs. Many of you know I like to grow my herbs in pots. This is so that I can move them indoors in the fall when it starts to get chilly, so I can extend the season as long as possible.
Just so you know, my Dad has dibs on the okra, but everything else is up for grabs. Let the vegetable blogging begin!

Put me on the list. You're a much better person than I am...vegetable gardening just isn't something I'm able to keep up with. And...too many rabbits.

Love the garden pics! So far, I have only planted tomatoes & jalapeno peppers, and a couple of them got a little bit of frostbite. Much more planting to do!
