Today, I am thankful for my garden. I am thankful for my husband, who works so hard to keep it weeded and fruitful. Truth be told, he does most of the work. I do the easy part - collecting the goodies!
This is a planter box that he built. It held a plethora of cucumber vines, along with these eggplant. The cucumbers were overrun by weeds. No kidding - it was hard to get close to the box because the weeds - which were very itchy - were sticking out about a foot past the borders. Today, he cleaned every bit of it out, and planted new cuke seeds (which I feel sure will grow just fine, as our old cucumber vines had begun to flower again).
I am thankful for things that grow, for people and for gardens. :)
