The fruits of my labor

IMG_6769IMG_6770This summer, I decided to plant and grow a garden. I dug a spot in my yard for it, and I bought a lot of seeds and planted them. But unfortunately, the only thing that grew were five cherry tomatoes. They were promptly eaten.

I’m not sure if there was a sneaky rabbit involved in stealing my crops, but my garden frog did not alert me about intruders.

It appears I did not have a green thumb this year, but maybe next.

    Don’t give up. It takes time to get it right – as in lots of time. Every year I learn something new. Every year, I think, ah, that’s what I want to do next year. It’s all about experimenting and trying to work with your soil. You really need to amend the soil with compost. I’m trying to do more compost. Best wishes for growing success!

      Thanks for the tip! I will try that next time. I had grandparents who farmed, so I think it’s a part of me. I’m just going to have to tap into it. I would love to grow some of my own organic foods like the ones I buy at farmers markets now.
