The Fruits of Our Labors

It’s the end of July, and we are finally getting some summer sun and seeing some of the fruits of our labors – literally! Check out these tiny zucchinis, tomatos, and peas!

We’ve learned a lot about gardening this year, and it’s encouraging to see how well things are doing, and knowing it will only get better as we add more nutrients to our soil.

Here are the plants I’m trying to propagate in their mason jar mini greenhouses. So far everything looks pretty good except for one of my Roman chamomile cuttings… I think that one might die. But I’ve got some German chamomile growing outside in my newly established herb garden that seems to be doing well! I also planted some more lavender, basil, thyme, sage, oregano, dill, mint, rosemary, and parsley. It’s so exciting for me!!!

Here we’ve got a hydrangea, some Roman chamomile, a sungold tomoato, and a hybrid tea rose. I hope they all make it!!

Mason is getting himself up on those little feet more and more. He likes to crawl on all fours (hands and feet rather than hands and knees) and sometimes can even pull himself up to stand, like so:

Yep. He’s the cutest baby ever. And he now has 5 teeth with 2 more ready to break through any day now!
