In the beginning it was the Garden of Eden. …. some corn, beans, tomatoes, like 20 of them, there were strawberries, lots of watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkins, chicken poop and WEEDS!!!!!!!!!!!
The strawberries did ok.
The weeds started growing.
Found about 60 volunteer tomato plants. Ok, maybe not 60. Maybe 30. We should have pulled them out but we didn’t. Now they are strangling each other.
The beans got ate up by bugs and gave up the ghost.
The weeds kept growing. I pulled them on occasions but couldn’t get them all.
Umm, what next. The corn produced about 6,7 or 8 yucky looking ears. (which the girls ate).
The weeds STILL kept growing. and growing. and growing.
The tomato plants are huge, the watermelon are crawling everywhere and Hurray! the pumpkins are trying to kill the weeds!!
Our Garden of Eden is a total nightmare. If you drove by it, and don’t, you’d think it was a fenced in weed patch. BUT I know where to walk to find things, so fear not, we’ll harvest the stuff that is still growing.
Now the reason for all of this was that chicken poop mentioned way up there. Moral of the story. Use in small doses if you want to be able to find your vegetables.
Amid the weeds we did find some ripe tomatoes tonight and a watermelon. It wasn’t quite ripe enough, but never mind that, they ate it anyway.
There is a dutch saying and it means “nose first!” Now would be a good time to say it if you can.
You really wouldn’t believe what all this nearly 3 year old still does!
Catch those drips over the bowl. 🙂
And since sister hogs the watermelon, this one just ate a half rotten/green/spotted tomato. 🙂
There is a golfing tournament tomorrow that Eric is going too. We had to make a few runs to the driving range to get ready.
I’m trying to be like Daddy.
Madison tried so hard to hit it as far as Daddy. 🙂
And one last one of the girls and I…
