Conditions are Perfect...

Last weekend we planted our garden. This is the second year we've had a garden and as such, it is our most ambitious attempt yet. This is the year we learn to share with our landlord Stan. He always fills a garden, that's larger than ours, with roma tomatoes and hot peppers. For some reason last year I thought we should grow our own tomatoes. Some of ours rotted on the vine and he gave away tonnes to neighbours and friends. This year, we swung a deal. We'll grow cucumbers in our garden (which Stan loves, but for some reason doesn't grow) and he'll grow the tomatoes in his. And we'll share. What a concept!

This year we planted cucumbers, zuchinis, sage, thyme, basil, oregano, cilantro, parsley, onions, carrots, Kol Rabi, spinach, bell peppers, broccoli, fennel, romain and great lakes lettuce (which grow in smashed televisions), and the plant we're most proud of: eggplant! So far we've kept the weeds back, the seeds watered, and have had lots of help. It's up to God now!
