The garden I planted with Ez is going nuts! And it is so much fun!
First, the cherry tomatoes are the furthest along — there are dozens on the vine and we’re just waiting for them to ripen.
Also, we ate our first strawberry last week and it was divine! I should have planted so many more of these! But the squirrels made me nervous, so I stuck with only one plant. I love how those seeds look when the fruit is young.
And here are the (stinky) wonderful marigolds that I am crediting with keeping the squirrels at bay. The berries are nestled in a group of these babies.
The romaine isn’t far enough along to eat yet… but soon!
Here we have radish starts!
And green beans!
And more of those tomatoes!
And lastly, the basil. Oh, I’m so excited to put this basil and those tomatoes together! Other things we are growing: cucumbers, leeks, beets and carrots.

+ It only takes seven minutes to purchase an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle in Pennsylvania. Now think about how long it took to get your driver’s license.
+ Oh, and meanwhile, check out how long and expensive it was for this lady to have this healthcare procedure. It’s long, but everyone should read through to the end. It’s worth it.
+ On a lighter note, here’s how restaurants “trick” you into ordering a second glass of wine.
