I'm Gonna Say It…

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!
