As usual, my garden grows . . .
shall we say....out of control?
I'll take the blame for out of control tomatoes.
But seriously, is there any way on God's green earth that you can control gourds and pumpkins?
Maybe that's why I enjoy growing gourds and pumpkins . . .
they are random, free spirits of the garden
Spilling over the garden boundaries
and climbing trees with reckless abandon
and multiplying like rabbits
(so not like me)
Each gourd is similar, but unique
This is not a pear
just a gourd that looks like a pear
Tonight I counted the pumpkins and gourds
and roughly estimate
the gourds to number over 75
and the pumpkins to number over 35
Meanwhile the basil
grows peacefully in a neat row
and the lone eucalyptus
shimmers proudly in the corner
Aren't I the poetic one tonight?
Some excitement brewing 'round The Cottage lately....and I'm getting anxious to share...
at just the right time.
