Our garden is not elaborate or high maintenance. We killed the strawberry plants long ago, so we accidentally eliminated the plants that demanded the most of us. We are left with rosemary, mint, and basil that grow like crazy, especially after a good rain. I can forget to water them for a few days, and it makes no difference. They just keep growing.
The garden also offers some wonderful surprises. For instance, the pepper plant that yielded no peppers for months suddenly has two.
And out of nowhere, a rose bush is growing in the backyard, with a single rose to brighten my day.
