All but one kid was gone this morning, a rare occurrence in this house. Hubs was downstairs doing work in his home office, Elijah was glued to a new video game that he recently bought with his hard earned lawn mowing dollars and I actually had free time. So I spent the morning in the garden.
My first roma tomato of the season
I had mentioned I was going to try my hand at front yard gardening and here are some pictures.
This is my walk to the front door and if you look close under the window, you will find our pumpkin patch.
Out of at least a dozen seeds, we have three plants that actually survived. I chose pumpkins for the highly visible front yard because they just look so full and pretty when they are growing and I figured the vines will fill out my barren patch of dirt. Plus they will be so close to my front porch where they will become decorations during October and November before I turn them into pies.
What the heck is this? It doesn't look like a weed to me.
I also found a mystery plant in my garden beds that I can't identify and I need your help. I think it might be a pepper plant that decided to carry over from last year. Or maybe it's just a weed gone crazy. What do you think it is?
