my garden is flourishing. ive got peppers, tomatoes, garlic, lettuces, basil, eggplant, beans, peas, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts all growing happily right now.
I may skip spring/summer gardening next year. i should at least stick to the most heat tolerant plants and nothing else. fall gardening in texas reminds me that gardening really doesn't have to be much of a hassle!
my tomato and pepper plants have been in since early March, but are happier now than they ever have been.
My first successful melon, and it was picked and chewed by someone other than me. (I'm guessing a racoon.) I don't have the balls to eat it, but I had to at least cut it open and admire it. I tasted a little bit of it too. It was definitely ready. I should've picked it yesterday, dammit!
Moment of silence for the beautiful, sweet melon. It had so much potential.
