I’m trying my hand at gardening this year
So far the grass is doing great
I have to see the silver lining in this adventure
even if it is the color green
Where once there was thriving crabgrass
there is now thriving crabgrass and struggling vegetables
This faith garden has battled from the very beginning
Right after I planted all my lovely little seedlings
And then to make matters worse
I really thought I was going to have a hydroponic farm before all was said and done
It rained enough that the plants that I had painstakingly planted at proper intervals
were now crowding one another because they floated together!
I have no idea what happened to the two watermelon plants
I think they floated away
And at least one onion plant has been planted and plucked three times because I have a hard time determing what is onion and what is a hardy blade of grass
But faithfully I water and weed
and I just know I shall be rewarded
It may be humble beginnings but we shall persevere, my garden and me
I shall leave you with a photo of one of my more determined tomato plants
It may not have many leaves and it only had one bloom
but by golly, it has a tomato on it!
I call this one my Charlie Brown tomato plant
It may look a little sad but it gives me great joy to see the fruit of its labor!
I know it’s hard to see the plant for the grass but we are working on it!
