I met a friend for tea this evening. When she asked about the garden she said something like, she knew a lot of people were doing it this year, more than she could recall in years past. I kinda, sorta wonder what she meant by that statement.
Hmmm, maybe she thinks I’m trendy. Maybe she thinks I’m a lemming. Maybe she’s just making an observation.
I’m grateful that I started growing vegetables and fruit this summer. Apparently, last summer
sucked, was horrible for gardening.
One of the things I like most is the child-like wonder the garden evokes for myself and my family. You really, can't blink because if you do, it has changed. Do you remember last week when I mentioned the beautiful flowers at the Edible Gardens?
Today, I may not have enough okra to make gumbo or curry,
but I do have magnificent flowers on the okra.
