Ok somethings are just meant to be like this squash plant that is growing in my compost bin. Now I know what you’re thinking, but this is not black gold in my bin so that is not the reason it settled here. It’s the leftover potting soil from last year’s containers and maybe alittle compost. However it is doing much better than the plant I deliberately planted in my raised bed this spring. And the funny part is this one hasn’t gotten any extra attention such as watering, etc… Somethings just thrive on neglect don’t you think? Another example is my Green Bellpeppers below:
The green Bellpeppers I planted in my blue pots this spring are thriving and producing little peppers like it’s no tomorrow. Now I know for a fact that all peppers love to be ignored a bit. That means no extra watering or pampering. What gardener doesn’t love that? However this doesn’t mean let them dry out to the point that the plant suffers, just don’t overdo it and you will be rewarded. They love the heat too! Which is a good thing, because our summers are hot, hot, hot. And dry, dry, dry….lol Do you have any plants that seem to thrive on neglect in your garden?
