Veggies are staring at me, saying, "You really should be eating better."
I have teeny little squash, tomatos and bell peppers growing! It is, without a doubt, the most exciting thing to ever happen in my yard. However, the cucumbers are taking over, so I've got to get a trellis to stick the ground outside of the raised bed so it will have somewhere to go and quit hogging the sun from the other plants (cucumbers are very selfish). I've also realized that the tomato plant I bought is something called "indeterminate," which means that, basically, it keeps growing and growing and growing all summer, so I've got to fashion a new cage and tie the stems with cut nylons (my mom's idea, not mine). I'm also apparently going to have about 8,000 squash, so if you live in the Birmingham area and like squash, let me know and I'll give you some. I mean, I'm a farmer, people.
Also, I made my first meal with something I've grown: fresh mozerella, tomato and basil stacks. Just add a little olive oil and salt and you're golden:
So, that's that. What do you think? There's still time to get some plants in the ground, if you're so inclined.
