Well, summertime is coming to a close (though it doesn't feel like it), and gardeners everywhere are picking the bountiful harvest of their summer vegetable gardens. Today, I collected the fruits of my labor from this summer's garden:
Yes, that's it. A pepper. One little, tiny pepper. According to the picture on the seed packet, it should have been about 4 inches long. This one's pushing an inch. Then again, if it had been 4 inches, it would have hit the ground, because the plant itself never made it much taller than that.
So I'm going to make a few amendments to my gardening plan next year. Because I did have success with the peppers (and yes, considering the rest of my vegetable garden, one pepper is a success, thank you), I'll plant those again, only earlier, and in more soil. Then I'm going to buy beautiful flowers like the ones my grandmother gave me in July--only I'll get them in March, so they'll have time to grow before Hades hits Texas.
Someday, I'm going to be a great gardener. :)
Hippotherapy for James - Contrary to popular belief, "hippotherapy" is therapy using horses, not hippos. James LOVES horses, so I was excited to start hippotherapy at Hope Landing ...
