|But look! A single new leaf!|
Here are our plants today. The peppers, though my husband had declared them dead a week ago, are getting a jug of cool water apiece every day, and two of the four are bravely trying to grow new leaves.
Despite our fears that as gardeners we were failures this year, we are apparently going to be redeemed at least by a watermelon and the zucchini plants. If we get a tomato and a pepper, we’ll be giving ourselves Green Thumb awards.
For solace, I turn to look at some of the flowers blooming this morning in our gardens.
