Reaping the Harvest

This was my first year gardening as a 'grown up'. All on my own. :)

I started tomato plants from seeds way back in March... do you remember this photo from Easter time of the crazy snowfall and my tomatoes?

The plants flourished all summer, and even survived moving houses!
And now we reap the benefits :). I plan to make pasta sauce out of all our lovely tomatoes.
I continued my little herb garden all summer. I have really enjoyed having fresh parsley, dill, chives, and cilantro.

And the Bell Peppers! This was a grand experiment, and most people told me it'd never work to grow them here in the Great White North, but they are doing swell. The peppers are just starting to ripen and turn various colors. Can you see the orange one? They are smaller than store-bought varieties  but that is no surprise considering our food is all genetically altered anyways.

 Hooray for a little plot of earth, and remembering to water it!
