Chicago- Day 140: Vegetables!
I have vegetables! Hurray! The eggplant and zucchini are thriving with beans, peppers, and tomatoes on the way. The success of these plants is most likely due to the fact that Joe waters them twice a day because I am a lazy bum. Thanks to his TLC we will be snacking on veggies very soon.

Our first zucchini harvest. I think zucchini bread or zucchini cake may be next on the agenda.
