gardening update

I started my garden almost three months ago now, and we've been enjoying some homegrown peas for the past week or so.
They are sweet and snappy and perfect.

I've had some mishaps in gardening though, which I expected since this was my first garden and our weather has been very strange this year. Because of the weather and uncontrollable indoor climates, the seeds I started indoors failed twice, so that leaves me with no tomatoes, peppers, carrots or spinach this year. I also learned to plant my pea seeds further apart, which I'll keep in mind when I plant for a fall harvest. In the garden, the cucumbers and lettuce are taunting me with nothingness.

The broccoli, summer squash and cantaloupe seem to be thriving, though, so that's a good thing.

I can't wait to find new vegetables waiting for me.
