How does her garden grow?

Have never done pickles before, but am hoping with my cumcumber patch that I can can a few jars at some point. Hadn't really thought about where all my vines were going to tangle. Guess I still have some time to think on that one! :)
Bean plants have hit 10" tall ... only lost one so far!

Window #1 with peas, beans, cukes, corn ...

Window #2 with zucchini (can you already taste the bread?), peas, beans, tomatoes, onions.
Need another trip to Wal*Mart for some more peat containers. Still have radishes, carrots and broccoli to plant. Problem ... I am going to run out of room for indoor gardening at some point here. My peas don't need to climb according to the seed packet. Plant some plants near each other and they just love to intertwine. That is good. How long do cuke and zucchini vines get? Can you just see the rail around my living room strung with greenery? Would be a hoot until the landlord came by. :) More transplanting coming your way soon!
Planning to head south this weekend to do some sightseeing. Haven't been anywhere south of Anchorage (Jari has ... not the rest of us) to see anything. Maybe take along a book to read .. swim suits for the only hotel in Seward that has an indoor pool ... eat something I haven't cooked ... and not care if the bathrooms get cleaned or not!

I am planning on getting things to plant this weekend. I keep seeing your jplants and am envious, so better plant some of my own :)

wow, you have quite the garden going on!! Love those windowsills! Have fun this weekend! I am at my mom's right now having a garage sale, and so far I have made about $80! (that means that I can GO garage saling tomorrow with some of the money:)
Our sunday school picnic is on Sunday, and Frans and I are in charge of it. So saturday will be busy doing last minute things and running around for that. It is supposed to be 87 degrees on Sunday!!! Too hot!
