Our Tiny Garden

Brandon will probably totally make fun of me for posting this on our blog, but it's really been the most exciting things in our lives over the last week. Last Wednesday, just a week and a day ago, we started our little tiny garden and we have been having so much fun watching the progress.

Our tomato plants...

Now


Our little cucumber seeds we sprouted on our own. I sort of remember learning about photosynthesis in Biology but it's still so amazing to me that you can stick a seed under some dirt, sprinkle it with water, and then it turns into these huge plant with stuff on it that you can eat!

Lisa, this one is for you. These are all the little wildflower seeds coming up. We might actually want some more by the way. When I told Brandon you asked me if I wanted more and I said no he was like "why did you say no? We should totally plant some more in the front."


We also realized that we have a little friend living in our backyard. On Sunday Brandon said "you'll never guess what I saw in our backyard today." So I guessed about a hundred different animals and critters but I didn't get it. Finally he said "a snake." Yikes! Yuck. I'm not scared of spiders or a lot of bugs but I really don't like snakes. It lives in our little jungle area by the water fountain. We saw it on Tuesday and Brandon sort of almost caught it but it got away. We're determined to find that snake, catch it, and help it find a new home...far away from our backyard. Here are some pictures of it's home.

I can't believe how green everything has gotten! Anyway, so this is what we've been up to lately...

Eek! I hate snakes! Let us know if you catch it! Your garden is looking great by the way... I can't keep anything alive for the life of me. Me and my roommates bought a Poinsettia in the fall and it was dead after a week and a half... sooo congrats on your beautiful garden -- it truly is a talent :D haha
