A Slow Week


After the craziness of the past weekend with the rain storms and the Garden Party, the Garden Initiative Crew and I have been taking things easy. Last night, we finally summoned the strength to do a little work in the garden and were stunned by how much we harvested. The ground was literally covered with bell peppers, onions, and potatoes — so much that we had to work hard to give all the produce away. It turns out that even a small plot of land, when nurtured well, can produce A LOT of food.

Anyway, in keeping with our collective low-energy level (we can blame it on the July heat), I am going to keep this post short. Here is a montage of photos that show how much growth has occurred in the garden over the past few months. It is a testament the vivacity of our short-lived friends, the annuals.

I wish you all a relaxing weekend.
