In the Garden *of life*

I often stumble on weeds. Gobs of weeds.

And miscellaneous tomato plants… IMG_7368

and misguided/mysterious lettuce heads…

Many times lately, I’ve wanted to bury my head myself in here…but I only got wrist deep. Apparently I’m not that great at digging.

The random baby tomato plant popped up IN THE MIDDLE OF MY GARDEN path. I think I am going to leave it there…it must have good intentions.

The red lettuce head must be a remnant from last spring…a late bloomer.

I am so looking forward to the zucchini and ‘maters and cauliflower and cucumbers and eggplant and peppers and lettuce and and….Ok, I am looking forward to it all.

Except the weeds.…unless they turn out to be a good surprise.

Have a beautiful hump day.

  1. One year we planted butternut squash in our garden. A few of the squash went 'a little past prime' so we turned them under that fall. We had butternut squash volunteers for YEARS!!!

  3. You may not be great at digging, but you sure are great at gardening. I'm envious. But if you find a way to keep those weeds under control, please let us know.

  4. I love love love caprese salads with fresh tomatoes from my moms garden. It's the only time I eat tomatoes, really. I have dreams of planting my own garden, then i go out there and it is too hard. And dirty. And weedy. And creepy crawly. And I give up.

  5. When we moved into this house, I had a hard time deciding whether some plants coming up were weeds or flowers. One of my sisters told me that if they were pretty and I liked them to leave them alone. So, I left everything alone.
