Children, Mommy, Quite Contrary...How Does Your Garden Grow?

As you know...we are growing a "PATIO" style garden in our back patio area and the kids and I are having a blast watching our plants grow and flourish!  
Our tomato plant has an adorable tomato on it already!  And it has several other blooms too!  YUM!  Can't wait to slice into that when it's red, ripe and ready!  A little salt & pepper and my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Look at our little heads of lettuce!  CUTE, right?  These were started by seed!
And our green beans have little tiny beans on it already!  
ADORABLE!  This was another plant started by seeds!
We have already eaten three "homegrown" strawberries!  
And we've sliced them up and shared their sweetness!
Oh yes...and only one lonely carrot seems to have survived the flooding our patio had a few weeks ago.  The pot was the victim of the rain gutter!  Not sure what the final product will look like, but we are anxiously awaiting!

This garden has been a wonderful experience so far for me and the kids!  
Already planning what other things we want to plant next year too!
