It’s a Tomato…and a Pepper!

The first thing I saw today when I went to water the plants was a tomato right in the middle of the plant. It’s green, but it’s a start. hopefully there will be more than one this season too.

Also, A small pepper has appeared on the pepper plant. The green beans have so many little beans on them showing already too. Once these vegetables start growing, they just keep getting bigger and bigger so fast.

As for the herbs, the Basil is growing good as usual, the Dill is moving right along and for some reason the Cilantro is a slow grower this year. Can’t explain why, but I hope it takes off soon.

Rain Saves Money, Works For Me

While the garden is continuing to grow, I get a break from having to manually water it with the hose today because it is finally raining. The weather man has been “promising” rain in the forecast all week but today is actually the first significant amount we’ve gotten so I get to stay in and watch the rain feed the garden.

Beef, It’s what’s for dinner

I haven’t made anything in the crock pot (slow cooker) for a while so I found this recipe for Slow Cooker Beer Brisket and wanted to try it out. We went to the grocery store and got a beef brisket for tomorrow’s dinner. Actually it’s big enough for two dinners so I’ll cut it in half and use half tomorrow night and freeze the other half. That half will definitely be smoked in the smoker! I’ll let you know how the Beer Brisket comes out in case you want to try it.

Growth continues

While watering the garden this morning, I noticed the Dill is up as well as the Cilantro. Also the tomato plant is flowering already. The green beans, well they’re growing like crazy. 

Won’t be long before we’re enjoying fresh herbs and vegetables!

Seeds Turning to Sprouts

It’s been a week and already the green beans have sprouted. I guess that’s why I like them. they taste good and they grow just as well. Not sure if it was the couple of heavy rain storms we had or just my green thumb, but I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and hope that the snake keeps the pests away!

Garden Guardian

I stepped out to water the garden this morning and as soon as I walked around the corner I met this little (?) guy with a surprise!

I thought about moving him but read that they are good for keeping pests away. After I went to put the camera away, he was gone. I guess his short period of sunning was over. Looks like I’ll have to be a bit more careful when working around the plants when they mature.

Did you Whack it this Easter?

An Easter Peep Show

Now here’s a REAL Peep Show for you. Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Buy one, get one for free!

When I was out around the town today, I was quite hungry and wanted to have something to eat so I went in the drive-thru for Mcdonalds. I went up to the ordering machine and ordered 1 Oreo mcflurry and 1 hot fudge sundae, but my order didn’t show up on the screen so Iwas wondering if something was wrong with it since orders usually come up on the screen. And when I drove up to the pick up window, I got my Oreo mcflurry and they gave me an m & m mcflurry too. I asked about my hot fudge sundae and they noticed they forgot it, so they made me a hot fudge sundae and Igot to keep the m & m mcflurry for free!
