Garden lovin'

One of the very first things my dad and Bo did when we moved into our new home was plant a garden. Bo has been looking forward to having a garden for quite sometime, and after it was planted, he seriously gave the garden every spare moment of attention he could spend. It was so funny. He'd come home and head straight out back to go check on how the garden was doing.
The moment it started producing, he was in heaven! We have had so many cucumbers that we're quite sick of them. :) I've got like 8 bags of frozen chopped zucchini so that I can make bread anytime. And the tomatoes! We have had TONS of tomatoes. If the weather stays warm, we should continue to keep having them. We have dozens of green tomatoes on the plants right now. And FINALLY our green peppers are growing. I don't know quite know if they'll make it before Fall, but one can hope. Next year we vow to start the garden early.
Anyways, here's a picture taken way back when we were first getting produce.

Long live your garden! They're therapeutic aren't they?

Jealous (in a good way) of your garden. That's awesome that you were able to plant and then harvest from a garden in a few short months.
