Garden Update: 1st Harvest!

It has been about 2 months since the garden went in. Yesterday evening I harvested my first veggie! It was a nice 8" zucchini. Yeah, I'm a size queen. *snort* There are a couple more on the plant that should be ready in a few days. Whoot! The tomato plants have lots of green tomatoes forming, and I have a yellow pepper getting biger every day. Now if I can just keep whatever it is from eating my cucumber plant, I should be getting some cukes in the near future. I sprinkled cayenne pepper all around the plants yesterday. Let's see if that works. I know the wind picked up while I was doing it and pepper-sprayed myself. *lol*
