Green Thumb???

We were at our friends' house the other day and noticed that they had started their very own mini greenhouse garden. What a great idea! We decided to try to follow the Prophet's counsel too and planted our very own garden for FHE this last Monday night. Lukas loved helping daddy plant tomatoes, cucumbers, green and red bell peppers, zucchini, and hot peppers. Its been 6 days so far and some of our tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini have already sprouted! Hopefully we'll have good luck and grow green thumbs as well! ;) Thanks again Watsons for being such good friends and good examples! If anyone else is interested in doing the same you can pick up your very own mini greenhouse packet at your local Walmart for a whoppin' $6. Pick out a couple seeds for a couple more dollars, water, plant, and then replant the veggies later in the ground (or bigger pots) and VIOLA! your very own homegrown, hopefully yummy, veggies! Good luck!

If you have good luck with your zuccini let me know and how you did it.

That is a fun idea!

I've seen those and have been thinking about it, but being in Military housing was not sure where to plant them. Are you going to plant them in the ground or in pots? If pots, what size?
