a garden update

March 17 2014 098

everything has slowly been blooming like it normally does

and it is wonderful however, the one thing that has made me the most excited in the green department this week is our terrace garden

remember we put all the seedlings that didn’t get enough sun in the garden into bins and onto our bedroom terrace?

well…. we have cucumbers, tomatoes and squash!

joining Annie with how does your garden grow?
