An Unkept Garden

This is what a summer away will do to a garden.

The two plots of land below used to be in pretty good shape… Looks like my dad couldn’t handle our over-sized garden without me this summer. Two weeks spent with the entire family in Italy seemed to top it off and turn the garden into a jungle, literally.

I was soaked after my safari this morning. But, under all those monstrous weeds, I was still able to pull out a bag full of peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, okra, and squash. The corn patch is on the brisk of booming, and the onions, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are waiting to be stored. Happy to say I’m still taking a crapload of fresh veggies back with me to school!

Off to Philly this morning.

    Oh no! Hopefully you guys can get it back into shape soon. Gardens really are high maintenance– but wasn’t it totally worth it to travel?!
