The Inadvertent Gardner

We didn't plant a garden this year. I really wanted to and had great plans for all of the fruits and veggies we'd plant. But things happened, or should I say, didn't happen--like me getting my butt outside and planting--so now we don't have a garden. But hark, there is hope!
Behold, my watermelon vine!!!!

This watermelon vine is growing in the middle of our backyard. Earlier in the summer I bought a watermelon and we ate most of it. The last bit spoiled so I tried to feed it to Marshall, the four-legged garbage disposal. He wouldn't eat it so I dumped it out of his bowl onto the grass and left it. A few months later, VIOLA! A lone vine. I'm not sure if it will yield any fruit but it does have blooms, see...Maybe my inadvertent gardening will be fruitful, literally!

Yum, Watermelon! I hope it works for you! The boys are missing your kids. Isaak asked today if when he goes to kindergarten if he will be going with Kallie and Evie. When I told him "No" he was rather upset! But we hope to get out there soon...we'll see. Love you and good luck with the watermelon.
