Wow, if you plant seeds they actually grow :)

I haven't done a whole lot of planting in my life and I have always assumed I am not that good with plants.  Funny how if you WATER them they GROW.  Who knew.

So, anyway, I have finally seen some of those little seeds turn into little teeny plants.  It's so cool.  I love it.

Here is the basil I planted.  I thought it was never going to show up, the parsley still has not :)
Here are the red sunflowers that I planted, they are thriving (most of them).
Here, you can't really see it, but here are the tiny little plants that are going to turn into flowers, they are doing pretty good.
So, on Saturday I planted more flowers and a few cucumber plants and 2 HUGE pumpkin plants, Ben isn't so thrilled about those.  :)

We are going to take the area we ripped the bushes out of (underneath the family room window) and we are going to turn it into a little garden for me.  We will see how that goes.  If it doesn't go so good with vegetables we just convert it into a flower garden.
