How My Garden Grows

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

Remember my concern I had about pallet gardening?

I’m happy to report that Pinterest didn’t fail me…phew! Every single one of my vegetable plants sprouted from their seeds and have grown fulsomely. Ah, it’s such a beautiful sight!



And of course the raised garden beds are doing just as well.



 Mother Goose would be proud of me.

But unlike Mary, my garden grows with coffee grinds and orange rinds.

We have no silver bells, just lots of cracked eggs shells.

My pretty maid is 6’2” tall and loves playing in the dirt;

a fine specimen to see, but the best part is: my maid doesn’t wear a skirt.

He does a great job hoeing and mowing,

but most importantly, he helps keep my garden growing!


When we’re not busy playing in the soil, you can bet we’re out in the boat fishing for dinner.




And this catfish was as big a Reese!


That night we had a winner, winner, catfish dinner! Unfortunately, silly me forgot to photograph the fried goodness 😦
