13 little green tomatoes- Spring Gardening with the Home Depot

So it's been a full month of gardening and while our vegetables haven't fully "bloomed" I did spot 13 little green Roma tomatoes on the vine this afternoon. So exciting! Let's #DigIn


I feel a great since of pride that I not only planted what will be some delicious organic vegetables, I have managed to not kill them. I think that's been the best part of this experience so far. Perhaps my black thumb turned green? 


And look at our basil! I mean look at it. It's gorgeous. 

We have been watering our plants once a day, giving them about a half gallon each. Sometimes I water twice a day if it's super hot. (It was 90 today!)

Since we have put so much time and effort into this project I have been inspired to build a little fence around our garden to protect it from little critters tempted by our lovely vegetables. But that's something we will do later. 

For now I am just basking in the glory of my healthy plants. 


Look at our beautiful tomato plants. I am thrilled by how healthy and beautiful they are. To give you a good indication of how far we've come here is a before and after pic.

It's been amazing to see how well the Bonnie Plants Organics have held up without any fertilizer or chemicals. 

And since we are a super frugal family, I will be saving seeds from our tomatoes, bell pepper and squash. 


And while I don't want to "count my cucumbers before they appear" look at all the blooms on this beautiful cucumber plant. I can't wait to dip some cucumbers in homemade tzatziki sauce. 


And of course I will be freezing zucchini and squash for breads, brownies and baby food! My three favorite B words.
