My Green Thumb

This is my garden. It is a little weak and meager compared to some of my friends, but I'm so proud of it! I haven't tried for a few years, and I've never had much success. My green thumb is a little wilty. Even so, I've already overcome blossom end rot all by myself! Now I have 2 biggish zucchini in the fridge that I grew!! Yay! They will soon be zucchini bread. How's that for homemade!
Tomatoes! I always have mild success with tomatoes. it makes me happy.
The one in the middle was tiny (3 inches tall) and broken and sad when I planted it. It's the tallest, happiest one. Good job, tomatoes.
My "self-planted" pumpkins are doing all right, too! There are 2 hardball sized baby pumpkins and several very tiny baby ones. The leaves and vines aren't as big as other people's plants, but I'm so proud of mine!
In the box my love built for me, I have happy lettuce, stunted radishes and carrots, used up green onions and (unpictured) stunted kohlrabi. This is the second crop of radishes I've planted this year. I'm gonna try again, but I'm not very hopeful. who cant grow radishes! Me apparently.
There are strawberries back there, too. I thought I'd killed them in June but, there are now happily producing there second crop! (the first was about 10 or so berries one or two at a time that the bugs ate before we could--this crop is about the same minus the bugs).
This is my garden. I will definitely try again next year! maybe my wilty thumb will turn green after all!
