You are looking at my first solo attempt at gardening in the actual ground as this house is the first place we've had with a real yard in which to plant. And yes, I called my Dad to tell him I expected to see a high yield at the end of the summer.

He said starting with corn plants instead of seeds was cheating.
I told him I got down on my hands and knees and put the plant in the soil.
I guess we're even.
