Okay, so I’m totally embarrassed to even claim this as my garden, but here goes:
But see my watermelon there?
My Watermelon Plant:
This thing is totally taking over this whole side of the garden! If you remember, I ruined the first watermelon that it produced, but there’s another one getting really big, and a few smaller ones growing. Hopefully they’ll turn out good!
My Zucchini Plant:
This is the second zucchini we’ve gotten off this plant. The plant itself is starting to shrivel up and die. Guess this will be the last it produces.
My Strawberry Plants:
These are still looking good. I see a few runners I need to clip!
My Cucumber Plant:
It’s mostly dried up by now too, but I’ve gotten a few cucumbers from it.
I know it’s hard to tell, but that’s supposed to be my corn. Just Pitiful. We didn’t get one ear of corn off of these stalks. The bugs had already eaten all of the kernels on the tiny ears that did produce. Then a big storm came and knocked them all down. Oh well…
The potato plants have all died back. I still haven’t dug up all of the potatoes yet.
And then there’s the broccoli, carrots, cantaloupe, green beans and lettuce that I planted which never came up.
One day, when I’m an expert gardener with an abundance of produce flowing over, I’ll be able to look back at this first garden experience of mine and laugh…
Next year will be better.
