Watching my Garden Grow!!

I have never had the desire to have my own garden but I must have been bitten by some weird bug this year. I have been itching to have my own garden. Besides our flower beds needed some work so... instead of flowers we did food.
I decided to try out a few things to grow. I really wanted tomatoes. I bought 5 plants anticipating a few dying. But all 5 are growing strong. I even have found 2 little tomatoes growing on one of the plants.
I also planted little green peppers, jalapenos, green chilies, and 2 very huge zucchini plants. I also planted a few strawberry plants not pictured. The strawberries are not growing as well as the others. In fact I think 1 or 2 of the plants have died. Anyway, for the first time every growing something on my own I feel I am doing well. I am very proud of my job so far.
I now am having a crazy idea of possible canning my tomatoes so they don't go to waste. I think I may be crazy. We will see!
