My first Bell Pepper!!!!



We were a little late, but we got some veggies planted about 2 weeks ago. And, yea!!!!, there is a pepper growing. I am excited to finally have a veggie garden. We have 2 green peppers, 2 orange peppers, 2 eggplants, and 4 cantaloupe. We are also growing some tomatoes in the hanging planters that grow the plants upside down. I am going to plant some marigolds around the plants to help ward off undesirable insects. Next year we will probably make another raised bed and plant some zucchini, watermelon, and maybe some carrots or onions. It will be so nice to have some fresh veggies. Even the veggies at the commissary here are half bad like in Germany.


She loves to stand over the air conditioning vent. She even sits on it sometimes and her hair flies all over the place. I need to find a way to cover it so that she can't stick her fingers down in the holes. Kids are like cats, curious about everything and having to be in everything, especially if you don't want them to be.

Keara loves to help me dust off the tv. I guess it is my turn to finish the job!! I started scrapbooking again today!!!!!! When I get a few pages done I will post them. They aren't really fancy, but I needed to do something creative before I went crazy.

Congratulations on your garden! I would just like a little grass around our house... But oh well. No grass = no mowing! :)

Jenny P. - I was going to start off with a veggie disclaimer, so that those of you who have lachanaphobia (a fear of vegatables) could skip the first part and move on down to the most important part, but I forgot. Sorry!!!!
