My Kitchen is a Jungle

Anyone else have a kitchen corner that looks like this? I can't imagine it's just me! I'm so happy the weather is finally warming up, so that I can move my vegetable garden outside, where it should be!

I've got 2 large tomato plants, 2 small tomato plants, a few zucchini starts, a jungle of green beans and a tiny little watermelon plant…all residing by my kitchen sink. Lovely place for them, wouldn't you say? I've also got some cilantro and basil, but those aren't going anywhere…until a recipe calls for them, that is!

I got my tomato plants from a CityDeals voucher– what a fantastic deal! I've only used half so far, but for $15 {which I paid $7.50 for!} I got 2 large tomato plants, 2 cherry tomato plants and a zucchini plant. This is the last week for nursery offers on CityDeals and they are selling out fast!

Outside, our peach trees are doing beautifully! I'm so excited. My husband is more excited than I am though! I think he checks the peach trees more often than he watches the NBA playoffs…which is a lot.

Our strawberry plant lives between the peach trees. I see blossoms! Now if I can just keep them away from the birds my kids.

I already have a few things planted in my garden boxes as well. My peas are starting to climb! I also have spinach planted in between, as well as more spinach along the front, in between several rows of radishes.

The radishes are just about ready to harvest! I'm so anxious to get everything planted, and of course, I can't wait for fresh veggies from the garden. Yum!

    That's what my living room looks like. That's where we have a bay window that gets enough light. We started a lot from seed and I'm amazed at them!

    Did you have any issues with your stuff already outside with the frosts we've had recently? We haven't planted anything with fear of freezing.

    My kitchen has pots everywhere! We have peas and spinach growing outside already as well, but they are not as big as yours just yet!
    Cindy, peas and lettuce and several other seeds actually like the cold and can be started early. Tomatos, peppers and all the rest do need to wait until after the last frost though. I think Mothers Day is the rule right?

    Mother's Day is the "rule", but we've been having such weird weather here. I have my spinach, beets, peas, swiss chard, onions and lettuce out. We also planted rhubarb this year, hope it grows! My tomatoes, artichokes, eggplants and peppers have been living on my porch for the last week. Hopefully I'll plant them this weekend!
