How Does Your Garden Grow?

Future squash

Mine grows tomatoes, squash and tiny, 1/2 inch baby cucumbers. I should have planted less/thinned more. Next year, I’ll put in more raised beds and a few fruit trees. The fruit trees in the neighborhood are full of apples, peaches and apricots. The sidewalks are sticky with warm, summer jam.

These won’t be ready until late September; I’ve never had any luck with squash before. Watching the giant orange flowers slowly transform into oddly shaped gourds seems magical.

There is alchemy happening in this garden.

    Kelli;
    I grew 2 (don’t laugh), yes 2, tomatoes this summer in pots in my backyard.
    They were yummy! Then I discovered that squirrels also like tomatoes/peppers.
    The little thieves!
