In the past we have had a garden. It was fun, but since we are traveling more I felt it was a waste. We would have to be gone for a whole week and come back to zucchini that were mammoth size, tomatoes that were rotting on the vine and weeds that had grown like a jack in the beanstalk! And, actually, that was if it was a good week. In the middle of the Summer, if it didn't rain we lost whole plants.
So, this year we went to flowers. You can't eat flowers, which may determine whether we grow them again next year, but they seem to fare well on their own.
My husband has been away for a week and wanted to see how they are doing. They are just starting to come out, but I thought I would share some of the pictures.
