The underneath.

A perpetual chard that perpetually grew until it finally lost to Texas summer. 

A potted parsley planted and left for a year or so that’s gone to seed.

A misplaced mysterious melon. 

Malabar spinach’s inaugural year.

Complete with unexpected flowers.

And nearby neighbors.

    I could say how these photos remind me of inner experiences . . .if I thought that backyard gardens weren’t experience enough. So I prefer to look at thwm, and think about gardening myself. (Not myself literallyou, although I probably do too much of that already. I menth working with soil and seeds and things)

    Looks lovely! ‘Lost to Texas summer’ is pretty much the whole garden now, rain or no, except for peppers still cranking. I miss the okra the most.

    Is the Malabar spinach the vine-y plant? So pretty, those flowers.

      It is! Supposedly you can eat it. We’ve been unable to put the slightest dent in the sweet potato greens, so these have been left to their own devices. I haven’t had good pepper luck in this new house yet. Maybe next year.
