Garden Update: We have tomatoes

It has been a month since my last update on our garden and a ton has changed. We have had some phenomenal growth, had to add tomato cages, and added some sunflowers to the mix.
 
This is a picture from March 30, just one month ago just after we planted everything. Everything was so small, and most of the plants were still just seeds.

This is our garden now! Its so exciting to watch everything starting to pop out the other ground. From front to back, we have carrots, onions, a pumpkin and several watermelons, iceberg and romaine lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, sunflowers, and Gerber daisies.

 We should be able to start picking the romaine lettuce soon, and the iceberg is starting to curl in.

 Two jalapenos on the same plant.

 Aaron just planted the sunflowers, but all six have popped up already.

 Our first fruit, a cherry tomato. Aaron said that it tasted delicious.

 These are some of another gardener’s tomato plants, but they are so huge.

It has been fun to see everyone’s progress and all of the different plants that everyone has made. I can’t wait until we start getting more fresh veggies,but it will have to wait until I am back from Utah.

Life updates

It has been over a month since I last posted anything. The last few weeks have been super crazy with finals, work, and an upcoming internship. I had my last final yesterday, so I am all done with my first year in the book arts program. To celebrate, I went to bed last night at 7:30 and slept until 6:15 this morning. Not the most exciting way to celebrate, but much needed. We are going to see the Avengers movie tonight, which will be a little more exciting. I will have some updates on my projects this semester in the coming days, including the two books that I printed. And starting next Saturday, May 12, I will be posting from my beloved Utah, where I will be doing a 4-week long internship at the LDS Church History Library in the conservation department. My cousin is also getting married in June, so we will be there for that too. 
And since I can’t write a post without a picture, here is the instagram of our Easter haul. Aaron got my the Big Bang Theory (so funny) and he got Psych and a Gamestop gift card. Plus LOTS of candy, which was not the best choice, but its Easter. Until next time,
