|This is my beloved garden now. Just looking at it makes my heart smile.|
Speaking of fruit...
|A cherry tomato. YUM. They are taking their time to ripen, but I have forgiven them. They are worth the wait...SO tasty.|
|This view is beautiful to me. Two little pumpkin seeds did this.|
|And when you lift one of those giant leaves you might just find one of these! A toddler pumpkin with great promise.|
|And when I say "giant leaves", I mean it. They wilt during the day and perk up in the evening. Kind of like me in the heat.|
|My basil (upper right) is so very happy right now. That, in turn, makes me so very happy. My peppers are happy too. I have determined my eggplants are fickle; they are growing but not fruiting...yet.|
You know what doesn't make me happy?
|Tomato worms (hornworms) eating my cauliflower....|
|...and my green beans....and tomatoes. I've sprayed them dead (say hello to my lil friend) and planted marigolds to keep them away.|
|And THIS, my friends, blesses my heart most of all. It might be a small bounty, but it is a bounty nonetheless.|
I now have the gardening bug...I have started seeds for winter squash and greens, and have high hopes. Only time will tell...
