How Green Does Your Garden Grow?

We did it....Rebecca Lane is going green (well sort of).

This year Chick and I decided to plant a garden. Since we have the perfect sunny spot on the side of the house (southern exposure)......why not!?

Despite one of the wettest springs on record (we finally reached 80 this past weekend), we went to Lowe's and bought a very inexpensive pre-made garden box (some assembly required) and put it together in early May. Then the rains persisted.....

We decided to grow the following....

Yellow Squash
Green pepper
Beefsteak tomato (in the topsy turvy)

To my surprise, the pepper already has three little babies! Herbs, especially the basil are struggling in the wet and cold, but our weather is really improving so I hope things will begin to take off.
