PCA Victory Garden Update

I hope you didn't miss out on last Spring's "Victory Garden" fundraiser from the PCA.  For $20, you got a cucumber plant, a tomato plant, one bsail and one thyme plant. We bought two.

I jammed them into various corners of our flower beds since we don't have a use-able backyard (it's a swamp - literally  and a protected one at that).  Here's one tomato/basil/thyme combo:

The cucumbers went in front of the azaleas. They have now taken over the azaleas.

And here's our first harvest! No, it's not much but the kids love picking and eating them.

The vegetable-averse son will even eat raw string beans off our one tiny bean plant (he planted the seed himself at the Planting field's annual Arbor day Festival - not to be missed!)

So, I'm looking forward to this Spring's Victory Garden sale.

PS - They should sell mint plants so y'all can all make your own mojitos.
