The Hot Stuff... Matt is in charge of our garden this year. Well, let me rephrase that, Matt is always in charge of the garden and anything that has to do with outside the house. However, this year, I just decided to not give any input as to what was being grown in the garden which is fine by me. So Matt planted jalapenos:
...and some banana peppers (I did request bell peppers but I was too late):
So Matt brings home this giant pepper from the nursery that looks like the banana pepper above. It sits on the table for a couple days then I decide it needs to get cut up so I chop it up along with a jalapeno I picked. I make his lunch and put a bunch of slices of the "banana pepper" and just one or two slices of jalapeno. When I asked him about his sandwich that day, his response was, "It was HOT! Did you put that pepper I brought home on it?" I tell him yes in which he tells me that it WASN'T a banana pepper but instead it was so sort of hot pepper when alone isn't that bad but put multiple pieces of it on your sandwich with jalapenos and that makes for a hot hot hot lunch on a 90 degree day-oops! Sorry Mattie!!!

We also have tomatoes growing, both regular and baby size. The regular sized ones aren't quite ready to be picked, you can see them through the cage but we've been eating the cherry ones faster than we get to the house from the garden. Like the bowl? I made it!!!
So there is our garden so far, hopefully we get a lot more tomatoes and we've already got jalapenos out our ears so we can make some more salsa-yum!!!

Heehee. I did that to Andy once during our first year of marriage. Ooops.

We aren't growing tomatoes this year. Our crop was really small last year, so we figure we need to give the ground a little bit of a break. Our herbs are doing great though! We need to replant the basil though. (And when I say we, I mean Andy.)

WOW! Tha'ts some garden, girl! We can't even get normal, flowering plants to grow. But when I do get a garden, I'm going to plant some blueberry bushes. :)

I love your garden! I've never had a place where I'm living where I could garden so I guess I'll live vicariously through you for the time being. :)
