Proud of my plant

Lot's at different stages

These are in our kitchen now, ready to be enjoyed
Just to give you an idea of how big it is, this is over five feet across.
The bell pepper, Diego's cucumber and chili's are in there somewhere
Cilantro planted from seeds a couple weeks ago.
My cucumber replanted, see below:

I do not grow things. I have been known forever to kill just about any plant we purchase and I do mean anything.

This year I decided to do a garden. Eric and I moved our raised bed over, added LOTS of compost and soil, removed almost all of the grass and got busy. I planted a tomato plant, snap peas, cucumber, bell pepper and a chili plant. I think we both did this with the knowledge that everything would die. In fact, two did before we got them in the ground! I have also since planted cilantro seeds.

My peas did okay but I think they give peas and die. I did not know this and didn't pick them in time so I never really got to enjoy them.

My cucumber plant had termites so I moved it and didn't think it was going to make it but it is doing okay.

I can't see my bell pepper, Diego's cucumber or the chili's because the tomato plant is too DAMN big. It has taken over. I pulled all the peas out and below is the photo of my plants. Let's play find the bell pepper!

Very impressive! That's a lot of tomatoes on there. (Even after Cucs ravaged it!)

I want to start a veggie garden so bad. When I do, I'm coming to you for advice!

Now where will your chicken coop go?
