How Does Your Garden Grow?

Mary, Mary, quiet contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.

I know too many nursery rhymes for my own good. Buuuuut, in other news, we have tomatoes! And lots of them! They were slow coming and for a while I thought they might all die. But nope! We have nice, plump red tomatoes. 
Our small cherry tomatoes aren't ripe yet, but they are finally coming in, too! I'm just glad they survived my clumsy gardening hands.
And speaking of surviving, this lone pepper is a fighter. He is the only one that made it on any of our pepper plants and I can't wait until he's ready to be picked.
We also have an abundance of grapes that will probably be ripe in another month or so. Problem is I'm pretty sure they are tart wine grapes. So does anybody want a truck full or wine grapes? My preggo self has no need for this! 
It's so fun to watch your garden grow! Although I have to admit these tomatoes didn't thrive because of me. I have no idea what I'm doing! I barely even watered those guys! I may have forgotten about them for about a two week period. They just must be a hardy plant. But I hope next summer to expand my garden and work on my skills because I see some spinach, zucchini, carrots, and squash in my future!

How about you? What's in your garden and do you have any gardening tips to share?

Today I'm excited to introduce you to Tara from Starletta Designs. She is a graphic designer and jewelry designer living in Canada with her hubby and two fur babies, Cleatus and Crawal. She recently purchased her very first home (and this girl has some awesome taste when it comes to home decor!) and is dealing with all the ups and downs that come with being a first time homeowner! And, like me, she still considers herself a newlywed even though she's been married over a year ;) (That's allowed, right?) If you want to see some gorgeous pictures from her special day, go here!

So be sure to stop by to meet this lovely lady and make a new friend!
Happy Tuesday!

We've started making our garden larger this year, too. We have been growing onions, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, herbs, strawberries, and swiss chard. Unfortunately it has rained so much that most things have died due to fungus. Good luck on your garden! It is such a pleasure to watch it grow.
