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!
