Gardening is a joyous activity.
It doesn’t make any difference whether its flowers or a veggie patch, planting seeds and watching them grow is rewarding in many, many ways.
I usually plant only flowers in my small patio garden but this year I planted a squash and a watermelon as well.
So far, I’ve harvested one batch of squash and have about a dozen more that will be ready to pick by the end of the week. I also have three tiny watermelons that are about the size of my pinky finger. I can’t wait for them to get big enough to harvest.
I think that next year, instead of morning glory, I’ll plant pole beans on my trellis.
Hmmmm, next year’s garden will have squash, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and watermelon. All I’ll need to add is cornbread and iced tea for the perfect Southern meal.
