One of my lifelong dreams is to have a large garden. I want flowers, vegetables, fruit and fruit trees. Unfortunately it will probably be a long time until I can afford a yard of my own. My mother lets me plant some things in her yard and I have tried container gardening. Unfortunately most of my plants aren't very productive. The only plants that have done well were zucchini and yellow squash. I came home so late at night that I wouldn't be able to check my plants until the weekend and my zucchini would be almost as long as my arm. A few weeks ago we bought seeds and a seed starter kit. I planted sunflowers, yellow squash, zucchini and morning glories.

I'm kind of hoping our morning glories will look like this.

And I can't explain it, I just don't know what it is.

There's just something about green grass and leaves

That makes me feel like I'm alive.

As the plants live, I live.

Seeing them thrive makes me feel alive.

If I lived in a large city I think my soul would die.
