Garden Gone Wild


   Our garden is doing it's own thing right now, with very little attention from us.  We've had too much packed into too little time, and the garden seems to be thriving on neglect.  The parsley, I've been told, is in its year to seed, and it is reaching heights like Jack's beanstalk.  We have oregano infiltrating every spare spot it can find, petunias pouring out, and bean vines growing wherever they want.

   Exciting finds today were a shiny green tomato, bushels of beans, and flowering pumpkins and cucumbers.  We also have some tiny carrot plants, sunflower stalks, and sturdy-looking pepper plants.  The garden is completely random, which suits us just fine.  It's fun to see changes and growth, and my little garden helper still loves to go out and check on its progress every day.

I love when our garden finds its own way too. I can't wait to see how yours develops over the season. I am stopping by from the Tuesday Garden Party. Have a great week!

Your garden still works as a learning tool, no matter how much time you can or can't spend on it! It sure looks lush, though. :-)
