Uncanny ability for prediction

I am sometimes amazed at my uncanny ability to predict how things will work out.

For instance, remember when I was talking about the container garden that I attempted to start back in March/April? And I kind of made a joke about how I would end up with only 2 vegetables from my endeavors?

Well...

Shown here with one of our favorite wines. (credit goes to my husband for the artistic picture!)

I tried one of the cucumbers and it was actually really sour tasting! Of course, upon seeing the look on my face as I was eating it, my husband asked me what was wrong. And when I told him that it was sour, he said, "Congratulations! You've managed to grow a pickle!" Thanks.

Shortly after I picked those two cucumbers, the plants seem to have given up their purpose in life...

Amazing we keep the kids alive, isn't it?

My efforts at fruits and vegetables have been terrible. I grew one tiny watermelon about three inches in diameter.

I can only laugh with you, I haven't had much luck in the garden department.
The wine looks good, though ;)
