Green Thumbs?

One of the many perks of our second Chicago apartment is the presence of a backyard. Renting a place that includes your own patch of grass is pretty amazing, and ours even comes with a fence around it!

Since we have a yard and two blocked off garden patches on either side of it, Andy and I, in all our spring-time, ecotastic vigor have decided to try our hand at growin'.

The seeds we bought last weekend include:

cucumber
yellow squash
watermelon
green beans
jalapenos
tomatoes
chives
rosemary
basil

I'm taking bets now on the chances of us eating a poisonous weed we misidentify as a mutant herb. Any takers?

The watermelon will be a tough one, due to the time factor of it.
Basil, grandpa has a large plant of that, you can get a cutting of that next week if you want.
Sandy does the basil and spices without any problem. AND you have a watchdog to keep guard for rabbits and Cougars
