Forever Growing Garden

Growing up, one of the first computer games we owned was called Forever Growing Garden. It was essentially what you'd expect; you bought seeds, planted them, watered them, waited for them to grow, and then harvested your garden. Contrary to my lame description, it was actually a pretty fun game. At least, I think it was. I know we were obsessed with it, so it probably was.

Anyway, prior to two weeks ago, that computer game was essentially the extent of my gardening experience. But look at me now! Sprouts! I'm a gardener! Camaron too! So far, we have corn, pumpkins, lettuce, basil, and a ton of different flowers starting to make appearances.

Crazy gardening story: When Cam and I first started prepping our backyard for planting, we began by wetting the soil and loosening and evening out the ground. I was fixing a little area by the fence when I noticed a softball-sized hole in the dirt. I could have sworn it hadn't been there 2 seconds ago. Weird. So I started to fill in the hole, when a clump of mud nearby hopped! Turns out, we had a HUGE toad/frog living in our backyard! Seriously, it was so big. Like, frisbee-size big. I screamed like a freak when it started moving around. Luckily, Camaron was braver than me and gave the muddy amphibian to a new home (in our neighbor's backyard). Get out, and stay out, Chomper! (yes, we named him)

  1. Great work on your garden! Your use of space and variety of plants is impressive. Can't really blame "Chompers" for making a home there.
