Garden so far

John planted seeds from last year's Brandywine tomatoes, and here they are, sprouting on our windowsill. I'm already thinking BLT's but they've got a little growing to do yet.

We also went to Iott's and Medary Acres greenhouses last weekend with Mom and Erin. I was mainly just looking, but John got 5 pepper plants (cayenne, something else, and 3 habeneros), basil, cilantro, and mint.

I'm planning to get cherry tomatoes, yellow pear tomatoes, and a couple hanging baskets for the front porch.

On the non-garden front, Cooper just keeps getting bigger and bigger. He's been able to get on and off the couch and recliner for a few weeks, but the bed is still too tall. He's finally stopped horking down his food like someone's going to steal it and will sometimes go to his crate when we tell him (and sometimes he makes a break for the back door instead.

I need to garden. Maybe next year (that's what I say every year).

This will be our first year actually planting things in the ground--but containers work great (and are much less intimidating!) =)
