Garden Update

Our sunflowers are growing!!!! They aregetting pretty tall. We have lost a few, but that was expected I guess. But we are still going to have a good amount of them. I would say that they are a little over a foot tall. This is so very cool to watch! And Donny loves it!

I was also a little crazy this past Sunday and bought a 4-pack of celery. Why? I don't know. But I thought that I would give it a try. Why not..they were cheap. And they are still looking pretty good. We will see how they are this weekend.

This is what I originally went shopping for on Sunday. Green pepper plants. I got a pack of 9 of them for like $3. I was soooo happy. I can't wait to have peppers.

And lastly, this is our lettuce garden. Nothing is growing there hopefully this weekend we will see some sprouts!!! We will see...

Can't wait to see what these look like on Sunday. I will have the pictures up next week.

Our garden is growing!!!

I have decided that I wanted to add to our I did today.

I went out and bought a packet of lettuce seeds. I am really hoping that they grow...would have to have fresh salad one day soon.

I will do the same thing with they start growing I will watch their growth thru pictures. I think that it is a really neat thing to do.

Also, tomorrow I am going to go to the store and buy a green pepper plant. I really like green peppers and I would love to have my own!!! So we will be planting that tomorrow.

Will have all sorts of pictures tomorrow night!

Donny's Garden

So a few weeks ago, we planted some sunflower seeds.

We are going to track there growth thru pictures. And it has only been about three weeks and they are growing like crazy!!!

The seeds that we planted are for the giant sunflowers. They can get to like 12 feet tall. How crazy is that going to be in our yard? Really crazy...
This first group of pictures is from week one. I did plant a few more seeds (I had some leftover) so those are included in this as well.
Week one

Week Two
We are getting taller and taller....all of the rain and sunshine that we have had is doing wonders on these flowers

Week three will be on Sunday. I will be out there taking pictures of them again and we will see how tall they are by then.
I know that Donny is enjoying watching them grow...and yes he picked them out himself at the store.
