Mother Nature is a Miracle Worker
I didn't give her much of a chance.
1. I didn't add any compost to the soil.
2. I didn't weed.
3. I only watered when I absolutely had to and even then I would sometimes put it off.
4. I didn't plant anything until we were into a four letter month starting with "j". I'll give you a hint. It wasn't June.
Still, Mother Nature saw fit to reward me with all of this today, including the flowers… and the weeds above.
I should probably pay her back by scheduling in some more time to help with the watering and weeding next year if I hope to harvest anything. I think she was just being kind because I'm a first-timer. She probably won't go so easy on me next time.
