kinderGARDENS Week 13: "I Believe!"
Kim at The Inadvertent Farmer, who's hosting the kinderGARDENS Contest, asked what we "believe" right now in our gardens. In spite of the weather, disease, insects, etc... we always believe in something more, don't we? It's what keeps us going! In honor of the random manic-depressive type of gardening going on here lately, I present random photos!
Thanks to the bee-u-tiful triple digit temps we have been having...
I believe the "green roof" is dead!
I want to believe that eventually the Japanese Beetles will become extinct!
I believe I will never acclimate to the sheer horror that is the Tomato Hornworm!
I believe that my mockingbirds will be evicted very soon from their luxurious digs in the arbor. They are behaving badly and are not at all appreciative of my hospitality thus far.
I believe every child should know where their Thanksgiving Dinner comes from, and run from it if necessary!
I believe that there aren't enough potato sack races anymore...
On to the good...
I believe my garden trellising system will look like this someday, and that my kids will help build it!
I believe that we don't go crabbing nearly enough!
Finally, I believe that in spite of the heat, humidity, bugs and frustration, we will be rewarded with this!
Happy Gardening! Now get those kids in the garden, get them dirty and make them do chores, I believe they'll thank you one day!
