We didn’t have great luck with our garden last year, except for a bounty of tomatoes.

This year, we tried growing all of our veggies and flowers from seed.

We were so excited that we may have started a few too many seeds…and then planted a few too many of them in the garden…ugh.

With the weird weather (really hot then really cool then back to being hot again) and a crowded garden box, we haven’t had too much luck.

Our lettuce is a bit leggy, no tomatoes are growing in the back, and the pepper plants are naked. The broccoli was a major fail.

On the plus side, the scallions are growing nicely as well as the Savory herbs and the marigolds. We also planted one more tomato plant on the deck, which has a few little tomato babies that are coming along nicely.

Oh, and our raspberry bush is growing by leaps and bounds. I’ve spied about five little raspberries growing…can’t wait to eat them!

We also have high hopes for the zucchini and yellow squash we planted.

It may be too early to tell if our garden was a complete failure. We pulled out the broccoli and moved some of the more crowded veggies around. Hopefully, that was all our garden needed to turn around. We’ll update you later this summer…

Oh, and by the way, have you checked out our guest post on Two Pitties in the City? If not, get over there and leave a comment – I could win a donation to the animal shelter of my choice!!
