The vegetables have arrived!!!

I think it's fitting that my first blog post after a small (ok longish) hiatus is the result of the previous post. 


So despite the fact that I failed to follow the instructions on the seed packets that very clearly indicated the zucchini need 3 feet of space EACH, we have harvested our first eggplants and zucchini. 

Now I admit, the garden is a bit....crowded. I used tomato cages to somewhat corral the zucchini and the acorn squash, which I really do think helped. The N-boy, however, felt that a dramatic gesture was necessary to show just how crazy the garden has become. 

Our first harvest yielded three zucchinis and three eggplants. And we also picked two cute little flowers to put in the kitchen. 

Even Catcat is benefiting from the garden action with fresh picked catnip!

We can't wait to see how much more we get from our first gardening attempt.
