Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, How does your garden grow?

Some of you know that there are a few garden enthusiasts in my family.  My mom and father-in-law are quite in to gardening and/or getting others to grow gardens.  When my mom, AKA Grandma Book, was here in January she bought us some peas to plant.  Grandpa Nick gave us a Topsy Turvy and another kit to grow things. We are trying strawberries in the the Topsy Turvy and trying to grow Snow Peas in the the other kit.  Since we don't have a yard for a garden, our porch is our garden.  I was inspired by all the gardening to try to grow herbs since we use a lot in our cooking. 

Lynley is loving gardening.  She loved the planting and now loves watering her plants though she goes a little overboard sometimes.

We were so excited this week that our first plants, the pea plant, has produced 8 peas at this point.  I don't know how much luck we will have the rest of the summer as it is soooo hot here.  We will see.  Our herbs are growing great!  The strawberries and other peas show not signs of growth...but it is always worth a try.  Here is our proud gardener and one of our prize peas...close up!!!
