Garden Update!

So as you may or may not remember, Hubby decided to start a garden. Well people, we are officially in business! I have recently cut lettuce for salads, snipped cilantro and basil for dinner, and oh...my...word...

we are growing cucumbers! I know, I know...they look more like gerkins right now BUT wow...who knew?! And so cool to see how these veggies actually grow in nature. I had no idea that my cucumbers were born out of beautiful yellow flowers!

And check this out...

two out of our three tomato plants are starting to sprout tomatoes! SO CUTE!

Also, did you know that cilantro grows flowers??

I had no idea!

This is what we started with...and this is what we have now!

Happy Gardening!
