A Good Thing From My Garden

My garden looks pathetic right now.  I have okra, one eggplant (but lots of buds), some pumpkin vines coming out, basil, rosemary, and a couple of carrots (holdovers from the spring).  The hot weather hasn't helped, though I have been watering every day.

This watermelon split.  I managed to rescue it before the bugs got to it.  It's sweet and juicy.  I have two other watermelons that seem to be doing fine. I just have to keep watering!

My rose bushes look terrible.  I hope the winter helps them.  I'll have to do some serious pruning in February.

I love gardening, but not when Mother Nature doesn't provide the necessary moisture!  I hope next summer is better to my gardens.  I plan to enrich the soil before I plant my winter crops!  And I'll water all winter if I need to!
