Little Garden of Horrors

After a stretch of rainy days and some flooding in the area, and then a heat wave that lasted almost a week, the Little Garden That Could did what gardens do best: Got a little out of control.

You see, late last week we were all down with the flu. Finally, on the third day we weakly ventured outside in the “cool” of the evening.  We knew we needed to  water the garden since it had been days since we had even looked at it.

This is what we found.  Our sweet Little Garden That Could has turned into a monster.

Yikes! Pumpkin takeover!

Let’s take a trip down memory lane….

Day 1

Day 1 This is where we started.

2 weeks old. This is a shot from my bedroom window. I could not resist looking outside to admire the garden at least three times a day!

This is probably about 3 weeks old. I think right around Father’s Day.

7 weeks old. RIP big pumpkins. I had no choice but to sacrifice them when I rearranged things last night.  Lesson learned. Looks like next year we will be expanding! (Insert an "I told you so!" from Ian here.)

So, lesson learned.  Looks like we will be expanding our garden next year.  (Insert Ian’s “I told you Mom!” here)

We can now check “Successful Garden” off our Bucket List for this summer.  I made a salad with the lettuce yesterday and I’m having green beans tonight!

And on a related note…. because the kids and I watched the Teen Beach Movie the other night on Disney and talked about why musicals are simply THE BEST…. here is a favorite show tune of mine!
