As you probably know, we decided to plant a garden this year. We didn’t know what we were doing…we threw a bunch of plants in the ground and hoped they’d grow.
Our zucchini started out great. Then some little bugs got into them and killed them.
Our pumpkins are weird…kinda mis-shaped. But we got a few and they’re gonna make some good pies.
Our cantaloupe flopped. As did our watermelon. The cantaloupe started out great…we had quite a few growing…6 I think. Then I made a big mistake.
I weeded the garden. I thought they were supposed to be weeded, too. Crazy, right?
And the melons shriveled and died. We got 2 first…the first was really mealy. The second had no flavor. But then we saw one off to the side, one lonely cantaloupe nestled in some tall grass. So today Pierce and I picked that melon since it was finally ripe. And it was probably one of the sweetest I’ve ever had! Super juicy, too.
So I’ve learned my lesson!! I’ll never weed my garden again! 😀
It is nice you have variety of plants in your bakyard. When I was younger, we used to have cantaloupe, watermelon and squash in our backyard, and yes, I believe, they look wild since there were crawling on weeds. But then, I thought it was because we are all lazy to weed 🙁

Weeding’s highly overrated 😀
Seriously, you’re not supposed to de-weed a garden?!?!?!

*shrug* Go figure! I think next year I’ll just start planting weeds around my fruits/veggies. They’ll probably do better. Except the tomatoes…they seem to do better weeded.
Hi, I don’t know what happened this year but my crops did not grow too good either, i had a few zuccinni but not much else, i did weed a lot, maybe I should’nt do that, what a pain in the butt anyway. Ha! at least you got a few pumpkins, I had none, so I’ll have to buy mine this halloween.
