no money no problem ... everybody eats!

come anytime, any day ... see your foods as fresh as can be, come and visit
you never know just who you will run into.

always something cool to drink ... coffee? tea? water? no problem ... come on!

come by to see the full bloom! it should be sensory overload!
i promise you will not be disappointed.

if it hits my table, it's healthy, it's flavorful and it's fresh!

maters, melons & more

it was formerly a parking area before i took over

this year's garden is starting from scratch ... no problem

more to come!

Way to go ... there is NOTHING like the best heirloom tomatoes. Who needs a sandwich or a salad, I eat it them with a pinch, a tiny one, of salt. That's it. Once in a while I soak them in Balsamic for a few minutes but that's the fancy stuff.

O don't ya know, something good gonna grow

Potentially, a scholarly detail (limitless conjecture) on putting the purity back, in farmed fresh water fisheries.  Urban fish run tanks; I sure wish I'd the elbow joints, for my own preacher's bench.

What'd We Want?

Clean Water!

love gardening.  I had the best garden in CA.  couldn't get past the pest situation in CT and here the bunnies are big enough to threaten the dogs.

Comment by Phyllis on February 11, 2018 at 12:15pm

Yay!! I hope to have more time to garden this summer, too. I'm going to be looking for a new job with fewer hours.

Comment by Phyllis on February 11, 2018 at 12:16pm

Monkey, the key with the bunnies is Liquid Fence on the veggies and LOTS of weeds in your yard. They love weeds.

Comment by Anna Herrington on Monday

Holy Cow - I now officially feel like a garden slug in comparison.

(I did prune all the fruit trees, vines, berry bushes, did soil prep, and *looked* at the seeds to put in start pots this past week....)

How cool to share - my neighbors/friends love me, too, come harvest time  : )  But you seem able to keep people *fed.*  Nice!

Comment by ABG 2.0 on Tuesday

when my thumbs aren't up my butt, they do a good job with dirt!

there is a point of too much, but i haven't found it ... yet

when i have, my friends/family have also

somehow it all works out in the wash ...
