I high school I had 3 best girl friends. We did EVERYTHING together. We went on adventures, we were crazy, we had SO much fun! (and I found out later we were pretty closed off to the idea of letting anyone else in... I think we were just so content that that thought never crossed our minds. But that's beside the point.)
(This picture is about 5 years old. We didn't take a picture last night. Also, don't mind my hunchback... I was just trying to get in the picture better or something silly.)
Well, last night the 4 of us got together for dinner. We caught up on each others lives, got caught up on other people's lives, and reminisced. We even went on a small adventure. It was a lot of fun.
It also reminded me of how unsocial I am these days. And I feel like I should want to change that..
Anyways, it was a LOT of fun and briefly made me miss my high school days. Good memories!

Now, a month and a half later it looks like this:
We have a bell pepper growing.
About 50 tomatoes!
And yesterday I picked a zucchini!!! It was the first harvest.
We also have pea plants (no peas yet), carrots, chives, onions, TONS of blossoms: 30 on the cucumber, 2 on the watermelon, lots on the pepper plants, and lots more on the squash. I have about 10 mini zucchini growing, 3 yellow squash and more basil than I can use. I'm loving it!
