And every year I learn something new about gardening. I think I might have learned this last year too, but I forgot. A family of six does not need 30 cantaloupe seeds planted. Four would have been more than enough. So, does anyone want any cantaloupe seedlings?
Our fig tree is huge. I like it being big because the chicken coop is right beside it and it provides plenty of shad for the chickens. Its getting a little out of hand though.
Little tiny figs!
Speaking of getting out of hand-this boy is growing just like the weeds in the garden.
The bunnies said Hello this morning!
Not quite blueberries and blackberries. Oh ya'll, how I love to pick berries. Yep, its hot and sticky and the bugs love me, but it is so relaxing to fill our baskets up. Again, I am amazed. To see these little bushes bear berries and grow and flourish, it is mind-boggling sometimes.
At the end of the gardening year I think I will just scream if I see one more tomato. And at the beginning of the season I can't wait for the first one to appear. And of course there is a light-saber in the garden. Because that makes perfect sense.
And a very blurry picture of my very favorite flower. I wish I could send you the smell. When I walk outside and catch the scent all I can think is "I love the South." I start thinking about family and bbqs and my grandparent's front porch and sweet tea and all the things I love about my home.
For some reason I also think about Gone With The Wind and Scarlett and Melanie. I was never a big Scarlett fan though, although I like the book and movie. I always wanted to be Melanie. I mean, who didn't want to be Melanie? To be naturally sweet all the time? Except I would not have wanted to be married to Ashley. Good grief, man-up Ashley! Give me a Rhett anytime, although a nice Rhett. With morals and all that. Oh my goodness, how did I end up here?
So, since I'm here. Who did you like? Scarlett or Melanie? Or are you a little of both :)?
