The story of a girl from Oxnard, who ended up in Philly - land of cheesesteaks, Rocky and the Iggles.

As I mentioned earlier, we've been gardening a lot lately. We decided to try our hand at it and it's amazing how much nicer our tiny little city yard looks with veggies and plants. We has our first "harvest" this past weekend and have already eaten our first veggie from our garden. We've planted zucchini, squash, peppers, cukes, tomatoes, basil, and some pretty flowers. Thought I'd give you a little tour of our garden...
These flowers are right outside the kitchen window - so nice to see in the morning!
Our squashes, plus some peppers and cucumbers. They've grown so much even since I took this pic!
Out balcony with the basil and tomatoes plus some geraniums and a hanging basket. I love the way the plants make our yard look livable! Plus, some birdseed to keep the birds happy so they don't eat our plants!
Our first harvest! Sweet peppers - so good we ate them right off the vine! And more on the way!
