My garden (for Tracy)
My dear friend, Tracy (blog restricted to members), asked a while ago for pictures of my garden. Not much to show yet, as many of the plants are still tiny seedlings. What you see on the right of this picture is mostly "volunteer" tomato plants, many transplanted from pots which had been filled with homemade compost, thus the volunteers. Tiny sprouts of peppers, beans, zucchini, eggplant, cantaloupe, carrots, watermelons, cucumbers (I think that's all) dot the remainder of the ground. In the back, you see a screen door which shades the abundant crop of lettuce, arugula, and broccoli. Below, you see a "volunteer" lettuce head, of which I am truly proud. The picture was taken just before harvesting this past week.
