At least, I hope so! My parents came up from Florida this past weekend so my Mom could attend a bridal shower for my sister (with me, of course). Since it was my Spring Break, I convinced her to stick around for a few extra days and help me conquer a mini-dream of mine - planting a garden!
My one attempt at vegetable gardening in the past was a complete flop. The blog post was entitled "The $50 Pepper". Granted - I never actually wrote the post, but the title alone should give you a hint. Basically, one lonely little green bell pepper plant in a too-small pot that struggled with bugs, fungus and who knows what else and ultimately I ate one small pepper that was about 2" long. That was it.
So this year I decided to do it "right" - and do a raised bed.
My husband has always hated the bushes that were under our bedroom windows (to the right in the picture below -- apparently we don't take many pics of the back of our house, since this one is from before we bought it!).
Of course, how could I leave out a picture of our little champion who cheered us on while we worked?
