It started off as a patch of grass, that my boyfriend dug out. We add some compost/manure/stuff to. And some itty bitty plants. Sweet potatoes and 1 other plant, that I had *thought* was zucchini. Ahem.
Now, it's this
That tall stuff? 2 tomato plants that have had to be roped up. Twice. Because they are freaking huge. I hope the fruit actually is edible.
Green beans. I've harvested twice so far, and they are seriously yummy. I am going to harvest again today if it's not raining.
Crazy mutant tomatoes overshadowing my purple dragon carrots.
You can see some onions and the carrots here
The small vining leaves are sweet potatoes
And this is the surprise. It seems I planted PUMPKINS and not zucchini. Who knew!! LOL
Another one growing.
Cucumber that is almost ready to be picked. I've picked 2 so far, ate one and have another I am going to give to this sweet 78 year old lady I work with.
Just, ummm. Yeah! Hi, my name is Alison and I've been absent a bit!!
So, in a nutshell - I am super freaking busy :) Work is busy (always good), home life is busy (yay) and school life is busy :) Taking 2 classes, Accounting Principals and Music Appreciation. Just finished Macro Economics and Business Ethics (A's in both of them). If I stay on schedule, so far so good, I will be done with my. A.S. Spring 2016 :)
This is my cat, Daisy, at her vet appointment last week. She wasn't too interested in spending quality time there.
I have a small garden growing in my backyard this year :) Thanks to my awesome boyfriend who was able to dig out an area for me to grow things in :) 2 tomato plants, string beans, sweet potatoes (they were touch and go but I think they've adjusted to the soil, here's hoping), purple dragon carrots, onions and an itty bitty bell pepper. Oh and some lemongrass (for tea!) and flavoring.
I put in 3 rose bushes in the back, all are doing awesome :) we've planted some other flowers as well and also put some out front. My front yard is not as full as the back yet! Little by little though, right!!
I had to get a new lawn mower, and opted for an electric one (instead of manual) since my kid was always whining and people looked at me funny (not that I care about that) AND honestly, I just wanted my yard done faster. It's been awesome :)
The Kid starts high school in the fall. I really *really* hope he does better/likes it better than middle school. Because, yeah, happy that shit is over!
We have a vacation coming up, so excited! Universal Studies in Orlando! SCORE!!
Next year, I REALLY want to see my family in CA.
This year, I REALLY want to pay off the vast majority of my credit cards, LMAO.
There is a TON more to write, but work is kicking my butt, school is keeping me busy, house/home/love keep me busy :) I will attempt to write more often again though!
