My garden, or what is of it, seems to thrive on neglect. When I spend hours tending my plants, they reward me with a few stray flowers, but when I am so stressed, I often forget even to water them, they give me fruits!
The melon seeds that we threw in a pot a few months back germinated and flowered. So often has it happened in the past that I am used to it now. What came as a surprise was finding that one of those flowers got itself fertilized, and a tiny fruit to be is now making its presence felt.
It may grow into a melon, it may not. But I love the idea of having a fruit garden on my window sill.
Here's a picture of the flowers- aren't they rather pretty too?
