Garden Update

I shared at the beginning of June that I was going to try my black thumb at growing some tomatoes this year. My very handy husband built me the perfect tomato hanger for my Topsy Turvy planters.

Looking pretty good, don't you think? I have an Early Girl tomato (on the left) and a Cherry tomato (on the right). I am so excited for home grown tomatoes.

I decided to try my hand a couple more things as well.


The soil in our yard is terrible, so it's all container gardening for me. Next year, I am hoping to build some raised beds so I can have a full garden. This year, I have some strawberries, zucchini, acorn squash, eggplant, and cucumbers. I'll keep you updated on how things grow.

Are you growing anything in your garden this year?


  1. I keep saying I'm going to plant herbs but I never get around to it. Great job. I'll be coming over for some fresh tomatoes.

  2. I decided against growing food this year to focus on the flower aspect of my yard. You can see a few success pictures on my blog.

  3. @Linda: We have a huge rosemary bush but otherwise, I haven't tried any herbs. Come over for tomatoes anytime! We need to get together soon.

    @Chrissa: Good luck with your garden. I LOVE the green chair you painted. So cute!

  4. You know it. :) We're up to our ears in lettuce and we have snap peas starting to show up, some baby tomatoes, and lots of herbs, among other yummy goodies.
