Have you seen that commercial asking you to have paperless billing and telling you how much a tree contributes to cleaner air?
I'm hoping my abstract growing this year has done some too. I have a trellis that lost its roses (I am toxic to roses). This year we debated putting a gourd, pumpkin or watermelon vine. We thought about the trouble we could get into with morning glories and honey suckle. A massive germination of pumpkin seeds in our compost bin made the decision. And, I think we are too practical -- we would opt for food over flowers. Especially when the food has great flowers. This pumpkin was born on a fence and I've wound the vines in the trellis to help support it. I learned the hard way, not to move the pumpkin part of vines. These golden beauties are part of our morning view.
The vine could just as easily been a beautiful summer squash. I have an unusual zucchini in a container. Or a vining tomato variety. The trellis will feed our souls and our appetites if we bake a pumpkin. We probably will this year because the pumpkins resemble acorn squash too and we're wondering if we've gotten some crossing.
If you're considering a move to country where things move slower -- where a heightened sense of urgency doesn't rule, and where you can grow things. you should check out real estate options in the Ozarks.
