what your growin?

Hi folks,

I know allot of people have asked what we are growing in the munchkin garden, well, OK, to be honest, one person asked, but doesn't it sound better when I said allot of people asked. I feel like an info-commercial.

now where was I? oh yea, what are we growing.

Here is our munchkin garden list:

tomatoes (lots of them) their always a sure bet.

Lettuce - never grew, but what the heck, this year our garden is bigger. wooo hoooo!

Cucumbers - have always grown, but always invaded the garden, but this year we are going to try to train them to go up on the cucumber cages that little Munchkin made. We will see how it goes. (he may be onto something, gotta contain them their suckers)

Beans - never grew, not sure what possessed us to grow them as we don't eat many beans here, but our neighbor (who we use all her gardening advice) told us they are easy to grow. So why not, we got the space now, did i forget to mention of the increase of our garden...whooooo hooooo.

onions - we eat allot of onions. We don't have much luck with onions, but since we like them, we keep trying.

as for our herbs:

and thyme
(hmmmmmmm now i have Simon and Garfunkel in my head, even though we dont have sage, I just write whatever pops in my little pea brain and you all have to bare with it.)

We also have basil. I mean, how can you have herbs without the basil. I made allot of pesto last year, gotta love the pesto. yum yum yum

So there you go folks, our munchkin garden is complete, everything is planted.

"Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose"

or in munchkin lands garden, "becomes the tomato"

That's right folks, topsey turvey is already growing a little tomato, as the ones planted in the ground have not grown their flowers yet.

As the race is on, we will see what happens in the next couple of months. Who will grow the best tomatoes? who will sustain the harsh weather elements? who will not be eaten by unknown critters? who will survive?

Oh what do you want? I'm trying to make it a little more exciting then watching paint dry?Photobucket


  1. I can't wait to get my seedlings into the ground! I am going to grow a few plants upside down in buckets, I'll let you know how it turns out...

  2. wow! your tomato is off to a good start! good luck!
