I've not been having very good luck at having a vegetable garden lately.
Last summer I tried a "Bag Garden" after reading about the idea in the newspaper.
It sounded like a good idea...
Use double brown paper bags like you get from the grocery store,
fill them with enhanced soil,
plant your seeds or seedlings,
surround them with mulch,
and PRESTO - supposedly enjoy your harvest!
Well, that didn't work out too good.
Peaking through my lattice,
you can see this year's garden.
This was supposed to be a tomato patch
with a border of zinnias.
Well, I guess the zinnias must have loved the Miracle Grow,
because as you can see,
they took over the garden spot.
But along with the zinnias came an unexpected blessing -
...Many varieties and colors just like the zinnias!
I think I won't worry about the vegetable garden.
I'll just enjoy the crop of zinnias and butterflies that God has blessed me with!
The farmer's market will have the veggies I need!
And that's my JOY4TODAY!
