My Pathetic Garden
When we built this house I had big plans for the yard. They included a big beautiful wild rose garden on the south side, lots of room to play, and of course, a fruitful garden. I have never done much gardening, and I had no idea how to go about doing it. I still don't. This spring I planted a ton of seeds to start indoors, and the spring was so weird & long, with snow in April, that I completely killed off an entire batch of seedlings just by leaving them inside for too long. Anyway, once I did get some seedlings to stick around, and transplanted them to the great outdoors, I think I forgot to turn on the garden part of our sprinkling system, and killed them off again. Our water turns on at like 2 in the morning so it was easy to forget about. Well, I am happy to say that the watermelon and one single corn stalk are still going strong. And my Costco tomato plants are freaking rockstars. Look how huge they are! And yesterday I picked my very first ever homegrown tomato! How cute is that? Too cute to eat, I'll tell you that much.
