This worked, too

By Penny Stine

It's easy to see what worked in the garden this time of year. Although this pic conveys the general mess that my garden is, it also shows that several things worked this year. 

Using old tomato cages as a climbing toy for cucumbers: success!

Scattering marigold and zinnia seeds willy-nilly to add splashes of color: success!

Pulling all the silly amaranth because I had too much of it: Fail!  (oh well... it kind of looks like one of those giant foam pointing hands, doesn't it? Who should complain about that in her garden?) 

Eventually getting red tomatoes: success!

Yes, I will include all that stuff that didn't work quite as well as planned, but let me celebrate success for a few more days.
