When I lived in the Pacific Northwest, I could grow zucchini with the best of them. Well, let's just say that the climate where I live now is nothing like Washington or Oregon. However, after years of attempts, with little successes here and there, my garden finally looks like a real garden! I am so excited for my home-grown tomatoes, and yes, zucchini!
Oh, did I mention watermelon? It's hard to tell from the photo, but it is only about 3 inches long right now. Isn't it cute?
We even have an artichoke, which is probably my favorite vegetable:
Look, look! The pumpkin is really taking off and acting like a normal pumpkin plant should:
Shhh, don't tell the birds, but I think we will have grapes this year:
I enjoy doing the "yard walk", whether in my own backyard, or the yards of friends and family. Fruiting, flowering, or simply just growing--the plants bring me joy.
And as long as Peter leaves some fruits and veggies for us, I don't mind that he takes in the view:
I'm still amazed that my once dry and weedy yard could transform into such an oasis. One last photo for this virtual walk:
I hope you enjoyed the virtual walk. I'll probably be leading another one in a month or so!
