How does your garden grow?

I am so excited about my little container garden. It seems to be doing so well! We have had a LOT of rain and some warm, sunny days and things are happening! A few days ago I got my first teeny tiny tomato. Well, now it is golf-ball sized and has invited about 15 friends to the party! I also have the beginnings of peppers and squash, and my first eggplant blossom!

And the herbs, oh my goodness, how the herbs have just exploded! I’ve already been using them a little and I can’t wait to make about a gallon of pesto from all the basil!

My lettuce is looking wonderful, too. The only plant that doesn’t seem to be thriving is my spinach. But I’m not gonna let that get me down!

Here are a few garden-porn photos for you to enjoy. 🙂

The cutest little inchworm! I'd never actually seen one before!
