I love Facebook!
There I said it.
But this post isn’t about FB, it’s about my garden. I do not live on FB, and I’ve even flirted deactivation a couple of times. But, reconnecting with an old friend is a magical moment indeed and there is no better tool for this than Facebook. Maybe it’s the new business, or maybe I’m just at that age, but recently I have come to know, again, some brilliant and wonderful people. But, while messaging on FB is “convenient”, there is nothing like a good ‘ol American chat on the phone to catch up. Partially because it’s summer, these marathon reacquaints give me a great opportunity to mind the garden while talking with an old friend. Here are a few pictures of what I been able to produce so far this season in our tiny urban garden:
In the foreground, Thai Basil. In the background… Basil Basil.
Can you see the first little squashes growing here? –>
These guys were seeds a year ago.
This WILL be a pumpkin by the Fall. Hopefully I can reclaim my pumpkin glory from days of yore!
Finally, my attempt at hops. If they survive the winter they will a great addition, visually and aromatically, to the garden next year. I may even try to learn how to make them “beerable”. Get it?!
I will be sure to update everyone as the season progresses.
Thanks old friend!
