Surprise tomatoes!

Look! Something actually grew!!

Remember when I said that I think I would have to forget about the garden this year? Well, look what I found in the garden today!

And I found this too…

It’s a itty-bitty baby pepper! A few of them, actually!

And finally, this is growing all over, but I have no idea what it is. Any one care to take a guess?

Mystery Fruit?

My husband found this yesterday in our grapefruit bush/tree.

Four little eggs – but we haven’t seen the mama birdie at all 😦

How does one know when limes are ripe? They just stay green!


Lots of limes!

But what I’m most excited about is this, which my husband made for us. ❤

A swing built for two

When we bought this house, it came with quite a few old oak trees. They are perfect shade trees, but even more perfect for a swing! I love it! It was one of the things I always wanted when I grew up – a tree big and strong enough to have a swing on. And now, we do.

Almost a year after we moved in, I love that this house is starting to feel more like our home.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Super awesome! Love to find little surprises in the garden. By chance are them little mystery plants morning glories or moon flowers?

    maybe Summer squash….Defo not okra tho. I think God may be trying to tell you that even tho you didnt have time to make a garden- he gave you a little bit of help!!! LOL…
    LoVE the swing too. We always had one like that when we was little…only it was make of two X 6 oak board…..and when I was 10 I fell offf it once knocking the breath out of me and when I sat up- I got hit in the back of the head with it…I started getting migraines after that…I think I mighta broke my head. (Mom & Dad never took me to the doc cause I was so embarrassed about falling off the swing and then being stupid enough to sit up that I never told them I got hit)……

    Love the swing!! I always wanted one like that growing up, too 🙂
    Have fun with all your veggies and fruits – great that you didn’t even have to work on growing them, ha!

      Thank you. I had a bunch of flats that I planted but when I tried to plant them, they fell apart and I was left with a bunch of scraggly plants with no root ball. I tried to plant them anyway, but don’t think they would take. Then I walked away… I saw some plants coming up, but haven’t really done anything with it. It was a nice surprise to see so much had taken root. I wish the watermelon had taken too – maybe next year!
