My choices for plantings in my vegetable garden are often based more on looks than taste. Yes, I'm a superficial gardener.
I planted scarlet runner bean seeds because I love the look of the scarlet flowers, not the flavor of the bean. And I planted two watermelon plants because I love the shape of the leaves.
But superficiality doesn't make me any less of a proud mama. One of the watermelon plants has produced a perfect, six-inch fruit. If all goes well, we'll have a few siblings to enjoy as well.
