My Love of Gardening

On this Father's Day, I thought about how my love of gardening originated from my dad.  I've written about this before here, here and here. Growing up, I remember my dad always had a garden.  He loves to grow flowers, vegetables and fruit.  I realize now how similar we are!  In May, he gave me this jar of seeds he saved from the Mao Qwa Squash that he grew last year. I told him that I didn't want to take all of his seeds, but he said he had another jar equally as big.  LOL.  I took the seeds, (even though I'm not a fan of the squash) but I decided to grow a few of these plants in the garden, for my dad.  His yard is really shady, so he doesn't have a lot of room to grow edibles.  Hopefully the plants will produce lots of squash for him.  Hope you all had a great Father's day!


  1. It's funny because all my life growing up my mom had gardens and grew food, canned pickels etc.... I never really gave it an interest until my husband and I bought our own property and now it seems I am just like my mother!

    Isn't it funny how that works!

  2. Aren't we just our Father's daughters? Hope your squash are prolific!

  3. How sweet of you to grow it for your Dad. Fingers crossed for a bumper crop.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
