TCoFTH: Mother Nature Has A Sense Of Humor
You remember a few weeks ago when I planted my garden and said I wasn’t exactly expecting anything to grow since I tend to kill plants? This is what it looks like now:
Apparently I’m now so good at not killing things I managed to grow stuff I didn’t even plant.
We had a really steady rain for a while, and at the end of it, some tiny little green leaves started sprouting up. They sort of looked like baby clovers, but since I can’t exactly draw a straight line and therefore can’t plant in a straight line, I was too afraid to start ripping stuff out for fear of prematurely ripping up some of my carefully planted sacrifices to planet Earth. Turns out that was a terrible idea, because when we got back from our weekend trip the above picture is what I found.
Now there’s too much going on to try to do anything about it, so I’ve just resolved myself to the idea that the garden is just going to be a crapshoot this year. I have some identifiable things popping up right now like cilantro, parsley, and basil, so now all I can do is keep my fingers crossed that the roots of my invaders don’t choke them out.
At least the tomatoes seem to be doing well! I actually have little green ones. Assuming they don’t die while we’re on vacation, I may have actually successfully grown something!
I also managed to resurrect the flowers I thought were dead. Also not sure how that happened. I’m guessing it’s magic.
Last time I posted about the garden, some of you mentioned starting your own…so how are yours doing?
