My garden continues to be a source of insight for me.
Today's lesson; don't give up.
I was confidently growing an artichoke in my front yard.
The progress made in it's growth was exciting- it was very leafy, about 10 inches tall, and had a small 'choke developing. Within a few days it went yellow and brown, and the leaves all dropped off.
I pulled the plant from the ground over a month ago. It was completely dead, or so I thought. I tossed it into a planter bed on the side of my house, neglecting it completely. I was sad but quickly filled it's spot with lavender, and it has been doing well.
Today I noticed the little artichoke that could. I picked it up since it had been laying on it's side, roots exposed. It has now been replanted in that bed, and I gave it love with the herb cuttings and some compost.
So, moral of the story....don't give up on the sad looking plants in your garden.
A little TLC can go along way.
