The Great Green Hope

I am attempting a summer garden again. Much weeding has been done. Seeds have been sown with love and while I know not what I am doing, I pray that divine intervention intercedes on my part and gifts us with a bounty of freshness.

Above you see the hope of promised purple and red carrots, cream peas, squash, melon and tomoatoes.

It can't possibly be as bad as the poor showing we had last year.....right?...I mean really....no...think positive.


  1. I do not have a green thumb but I planted a heritage variety of tomatoes, Red Cushion Beefsteak. I am starting small and if I have success, maybe I will add zucchini or pumpkins next year. Good luck with your garden.

  2. Thanks. I need it. I truly have a black thumb.

  3. I give you points for just attempting such a thing. I cannot motivate myself to garden, no matter how much I may fantasize about homegrown things in my own back yard.

  4. Well, I am kind of ridiculous about it. I give not care to season or whatever. I dig holes, put in seeds and pray.
