Total garden fail this year. I only planted 1/2 of the garden. Then it sat. And sat. And sat still some more. No weeding, no watering, no love at all.
Poor, sad, neglected garden
I finally ripped it out. Found a tomato plant that I didn't remember planting.
Cleaned it up a little and planted some spinach, lettuce, carrots and kale for the fall.
I noticed something growing in the compost a few weeks ago. Figured it was zucchini, but then as it got larger I saw the leaves were not zucchini leaves. So I waited, and let it grow.
When I checked last week, I found what appears to be a pumpkin!
I may not have done well with what I planted this year, but I'm not doing too bad with what I didn't plant!
And, I'm already planning next years garden. For when I don't have a brand new baby stealing all my gardening motivation!
