Garden Embarassment

Look. I planted a tomato seedling. What? You can’t see it because of the….weeds? It’s there. A mortgage lifter tomato plant that will grow big, beautiful fruits. Normally, I pull all the weeds in my garden beds before planting tomatoes, cucumbers and squash. This year? Well…

It rained. I was out of town. I have had no free weekends for months.

It’s a long list of excuses. I’m thinking this year, the garden will have to fend for itself. I bet I STILL get goodies to eat.

On the plus side, the rain hasn’t just led to spectacular weeds, but the flowers are gorgeous, too. All perennials in these photos.
