Vegetable Garden

Our Kids

Take a deep breath Dad our kids are our vegetables.... and they are growing up fast! We started our window box garden about 6 weeks ago. We went to the local hardware/gardening store and bought every seed that tickled our fancy. With a little help from Ryan's neighbors, Bev and Tom and my Dad, we are currently growing: 
  • Spinach
  • Onion
  • Yellow pepper
  • Eggplant
  • Cilantro
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic
  • Broccoli
  • Butternut squash
  • Beans 
  • Tomatoes 
  • Sweet Potatoes ... maybe
The first picture is from week 2 and the rest were taking today. It is 66 degrees today! 

 The squash leaves are massive.
 Ryan found a way to grow sweet potatoes online, but it hasn't gotten warm enough for them to sprout... it's one of our favorite veggies!

We are really looking forward to seeing what comes of our garden and hopefully we will have some veggies to eat! Tonight we are headed into Ghent (a neighboring city) for a Jazz Festival. 

Happy Saturday x
