Seriously? My garden?
It's like my 5th child. My very, very loved and well cared for 5th child.
Not that all my other children aren't cared for in the same way. . . what kind of mom do you think I am? Geez.
But really, I am out here every day tending to it.
Waaaay more than I need to.
And to think that when I worked my A off on this, the thought popped in my head more than once,
"Ohmagosh. . . what if I am putting all this work and money into something I never want to take care of and it goes to weeds and it looks like crap and and and. . . "
Not so, my friends. Not so.
That's not to say that I did very smart things.
Like, um, plant 3 squash plants in one teensy 2x6 area? Yee-ah.
I've got the fru-its of
And, who in their right mind plants 3 tomato plants and A PUMPKIN in one teeny space?
Okay, go ahead and laugh. What was I thinking? That pumpkin was from a seed! And now the leaves are bigger than my head!
It's trying to take over. Mark it's territory. It's gonna pull a haunch muscle doing what it's doing.
Oh, and let us not forget this little diddy:
Of planting 5 seeds of CANTALOUPE in one space. Don't you judge me! I thought I was gonna kill everything inside! I thought nothin' stood a chance!
How wrong I was.
Next year, I am totally starting from seed.
I am such a gramma.
Want some zucchini?
