We went on vacation. The girls and I were gone for 15 days. Wade joined us for 4. I asked that while we were gone, he pay attention to the garden each day, pick anything that had grown and PLEASE water it. I know for a fact he did not water the herbs, because those are all black dead. I can’t tell about the garden because towards the end of our trip a tropical storm moved through we had lots of rain.
This is what I came home to.
The cucumbers got a fungus that pretty much destroyed them. All the tomatillos fell over into the carrots (they were little when I left). And the cherry tomatoes all busted from the rain. The corn is all dried up and the large tomatoes had been eaten by birds. But it looks like my yellow gooseneck squash might survive. Of all of it…that is the one I wanted the least.
On the other side of the yard is the luffa. Ever seen Little Shop of Horrors? That pretty much describes the luffa.
I also brought back this weird plant from my grandfather’s. He said it was garlic, and the bulbs do look like garlic…but after chopping one up it has a very strong onion smell. Not sure what it is, but it looks cool!
