In early May we planted out little "garden." We planted these tomatoes. The plant is taller than me! I have a tomato cage around it, but I also had to tie it to the porch railing. It is quite the rigged up plant, but I had no choice. The tomatoes have finally started to ripen and that little beauty above was our first treat.
We also planted a jalapeno plant. It has been producing like crazy for several weeks now. It is currently loaded with peppers. And they are particularly hot. For my green salsa I usually use two regular size peppers from the grocery store, but with this plant, I only have to use one small one and it is still hotter than the two from the store! Every time I cut into one, it takes my breath away.
We also planted some sunflowers, but they haven't decided to show their smiling faces just yet. The flower buds are just started to appear, so it shouldn't be too long before they are blooming. I also planted my first rose bush, but I keep forgetting to take pictures of the blooms. They only bloom one at a time, but they smell divine!
All this talk about my little garden reminds me that I need to go water it before our scorching heat appears. And then we are going to take a trip to the new pool at the park. Yay for summer!
