After we bought the empty lot next to our house, I started dreaming of setting up a square foot garden. I got the raised beds, three of them, configured and full of soil mix. It finally got warm enough to plant seeds, and yesterday, my order of dwarf okra seeds arrived. And my bright red tomato cages.

Yesterday, I harvested my first radish. 
And I ate it, with butter and salt.
So fun to eat what you've grown yourself.

Today, my granddaughter had a party at school.
And she wore the blue birdcage outfit.
She looks adorable!

This weekend I'll try to get some pictures of the garden.
Beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and squash.
I can't wait to get that first home-grown, vine ripened tomato!

Lynn, I would dearly love to see photos of your garden. One of the things I'm looking forward to in our move is being able to garden again. It's just too brutally hot and dry here. Radishes will be at the top of my list!
