Gardening Update

Remember when CG and her daddy were breaking ground on our garden? And remember when the girls and I planted all the seeds and began watering the area with high hopes of a delicious feast sometime this summer?

Well, three months later, here it is:

I told y'all I don't have any green thumbs! As you can see in the midst of dry ground, we do have one plant in the bottom left corner. I'm not sure what it is because I can't remember what we planted there. I'm really thinking gardening isn't ever going to be my thing.

As a matter of fact, last summer CG planted some cucumber seeds in front of our porch. Actually she threw a packet of seeds on the ground--didn't even cover them with soil--and after three full days of rain, rain, rain, we had cucumbers! Well, we briefly had some tiny cucumbers and would have probably had bigger ones if BB hadn't gotten to them first. But, hey, she was just a puppy at the time, so all if forgiven.

This year however we thought we would have some cukes again. The green vine began growing and green bud-like "things" started popping out. These "things" didn't resemble cucumbers, but what this garden illiterate know? After a few days, the "things" bloomed into beautiful yellow sunflowers!

Not sure how this happened...but we're liking it. Besides, it seems that we have more luck (since we haven't a clue as to what we are doing) with flowers than veggies! :)
