Gardening – The Good vs. The Bad

Well, every year there are some things that do well in the garden and some things that just don’t! Too much sun verses too much rain verses the bugs! Who will win?

I have to often remind myself that every win is bigger than all of the losses and this year seems to be no different.

Check out my volunteer butternut squash plant … it is still growing and producing!
