The Garden is Planted...

Was happy to see that some of the plants made it through the winter and are thriving this spring...Rosemary, chives and cilantro (which last year was a total flop but seems to love the current weather!)'s hoping that this year's tomatoes are better than last year's!

...what's been going on???

...lots and lots of veggies...above is my first eggplant...since then I've been lucky enough to get 4 more with several more on the plant....lots and lots of cucumbers...the chili pepper plant has a million peppers on it while all the other peppers that looked close to dead are now flowering and producing....TONS of tomatoes which are still all green...grrrr...hoping that they begin to get red and ready to eat soon....the herbs are going and parsley has been made into some tabbouleh while the zucs and eggplants have been grilled and baked....basil is awaiting to be made into some fresh pizza...can't wait!
A little race as therapy for a disrupted adoption....anyone out there in my extensive list of followers (love ya mom, dad and JJ!!) that has experience with older child adoption, I'd love to have a discussion...suffice to say, the situation was ugly and although I'm sure I wouldn't change anything I did, I do think if we try again we will do some things differently.
And lastly... what's a blog without a few pics of the handsome boys!!
