Update. finally... Gardening time!!

It's been a long while since I've posted. Softball season has been over and I'm just getting things back in order from the past three months. Now that softball is over, I've moved on to my garden. woot! :o)

Patio Garden 2011
This year I'm trying a bunch of different types of plants and veggies. I've grown most from seed this year. Starting them in small windowsill greenhouses and then moving them out to the patio when they are big and strong enough. :-) Here's some of what I'm growing:
* Tomato: Beefsteak, Roma, Johnny Tomato.
* Pepper: Jalapeno, Bell, Chili - from our neighbors plant from 2009.
* Pumpkin: Jack O'Lantern, Cinderella, mini-jack.
* Berries: Strawberry, blueberry
* Misc: Cucumbers, Sunflowers, Eggplant and a handful of others in random pots - because they weren't growing in the egg cartons (for a long long time) and I just tossed the dirt into pots...and now they are growing... go figure.

If we are still here next year, I might just officially-officially take over the dirt that's beyond our patio and put a raised garden bed. I dunno... we'll see.
That's all for now.

Thanks for listening!
