here we are, part way through a growing season that started pretty late. still not bad if i do say so myself. i’ve never been known for my green thumb. in fact, i always hated working in the garden as a kid. i was never much into weeding and growing flowers. but it seems i’ve found a niche in veggies!
sorry for the poor photos. it’s too dark out to get a good exposure and i’m too lazy to bust out the tripod. it’s like my photography teacher, tristan, told me – i need an assistant to do it for me. any takers?
these photos don’t even begin to scratch the surface of my little garden patch… i have tomatoes, zuccini, peppers, strawberries, kale, two kinds of spinach, fennel, various herbs… this is just a little sampling.
gardening is really quite therapeutic. there. i’ve said it. it’s going down in the books, or at least into the abyss of the world wide web. it’s true. there’s nothing like planting a seed and watching it grow into something amazing that you can then EAT. what could be better? kind of like kids i suppose, except plants don’t talk back, take your money and their lifetime is usually only a season. so plants are better. i am a convert. i suggest you all jump on board. there’s no need to buy expensive imports at the grocery store. why buy tomatoes from cali when you can grow them mere steps from your kitchen?
