The garden is doing great!!! Some failures, but the success of other veggies seems to out shine them. The salad was instantly gratifying, we are still clipping fresh salad mix from the garden, we can't eat it fast enough. Same with the basil. I made pesto this evening using the basil from the garden. It's been quite fun seeing things pop up. What has also been great is walking outside and getting whatever the recipe calls for while I am making dinner, no last minute trips to the grocery store!

And finally my pride & joy, my first zucchini, it's 10.5 inches long:
