I can’t believe the day finally came. It always seems to take ages for the first harvest, but today, I picked the first ripe veggies from my garden (not counting the occasional green onion clipping). It feels so good! I just can’t wait to put these goodies to use.
Today, I had a jalepeno pepper (or at least it’s supposed to be jalepeno…that’s a pretty light pepper!), 2 cherry tomatoes, a green onion clipping, a cucumber, and another handful of berries.
So far, the garden is doing better than we could have hoped. As long as all the peppers and tomatoes hanging on our plants right now ripen, we’ll be doing loads better than our garden last year! Hopefully, we’ll be harvesting more veggies in the next few weeks, but I’m so excited to already have ripe food straight from the garden.
