I also wanted to share Justins plant. He came home the end of last school year with this little plant in one of those dixie cups like you use in the bathroom when brushing your teeth. I stuck the dang thing in the window, thinking it was a bean plant, and just kinda waited for it to die. Well after a few weeks it looked pretty sickly, but Justin would NOT let us toss it. He said it was a pumpkin plant and he wanted to grow it. So Joe took it out back in the flower bed, planted it to kinda just make Justin happy and we both expected it to just go on and die. The thing was maybe an inch or two long and yellow and half dead anyway. Well several months later this is what we got! Never give up on something small, it might just surprise you!
And last but not least I had to show some summer tradition. Watermelon season is in and even though we didn't grow this in our garden it sure was goooood!
