Our first crops!

This year we decided to try our hand at growing some veggies.  Momma McBride gave us one of those Topsy Turvy tomato planters and we were inspired!  We went to the store and bought a roma tomoto plant, as well as some jalapeño and brussels sprouts seedlings.   We planted them in April.  We had a scare with the tomato plant; we didn’t think it was going to last.  The instructions said full sun, but the plant dried up despite our watering efforts.  It came back to life after a few weeks.  The full sun was likely a shock to the plant that had been in a shady area at the store. Next year we will start it in partial sun and eventually move it to full sun.

This week we noticed the growth of our first tomato and jalapeños are popping up all over the place!  Exciting! Nothing from the brussels sprouts yet, but we will continue to give updates!
