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.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane….
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!
