I’m so excited to share with you all that we had our first harvest from our garden! I thought what I picked was green beans but after cooking quickly realized that these were not green beans but in fact black eyed peas! (maybe I should start labeling the garden now?)

Anyway, I liked cooking and enjoying our first harvest from the garden. But with the weather being in the 100’s this week, I’m not sure how much longer my garden is going to actually hang on :( Some of my plants have sadly bit the dust recently due to the scorching sun. Not having much rain over the last several weeks isn’t helping matters either. I’m keeping my *fingers crossed* the garden can hang on.

What have you planted? Have you been able to pick anything from your garden yet?

    This is my first year gardening and I admit I don't know what in the world I am doing. Apparently I planted the wrong things too late. The only thing I'm harvesting any time soon might be a strawberry or two any maybe 5 cherry tomatoes. *sigh* I'm not giving up, though. Texas A&M has a planting guide that tells you what month you can plant everything. Watermelons and peas are my next project.

      Thanks for the heads up about Texas A&M. I've been planting for a couple of years now but still feel like such a newbie at it. I really should do some more research instead of just planting and seeing what happens :)
