Summer garden

The garden is clinging to life. Squash, pumpkins, sun flowers, basil, rosemary and watermelons are holding steadfast, bless their little hearts. The composter needs some attention, as does the front, former tomato, plot. I am looking forward to cooler weather and a giant Fall/Winter garden.

In the meantime, I really hope those pumpkins hold fast. I’ve got a couple little friends in mind who I’d like to surprise come October. How fun will it be to invite my friends’ children over to pick their own pumpkin out of my patch*? Yes, this very well may be a new zenith of domestic dorkiness.

I’ll need some overalls, and a pitchfork…


*And by “my patch” I mean the tiny garden Matt has been so diligently watering and nurturing for the last two months.
