Does your garden look like this...
I started this garden with only the best intentions, as every year. Pour over seed catalogs in February. Start my organic seeds in the dining room in March. Marvel over how healthy the are in April. Plant outside at the end of May. Weed, mulch and water diligently June and July. Then August... what happened? Weeds over six feet high! Visually discouraging but also completely misleading. I ventured out to the garden preparing to be devastated but instead I found a bounty!
Tomatoes nestled in their tangled vines. Beets creeping out of the ground.
Sweet potatoes beneath their withering green tops.
And pumpkins, my goodness, the squash!
Getting excited about canning this season and cooking up some great fall recipes. I need to be reminded every fall that its OK the garden is a mess. All the work earlier in the season will pay off yet!
