I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last post. Lots going on, just not much writing. But growing, yes, GROWING, has been happening. My little-deck-box-that-could, did! I was finally able to consume some real-life-home-grown healthy stuff just this last weekend, and dang it, it was totally awesome. Not trying to brag but, yeah man, I AM trying to brag so just scratch the first part of this sentence. Probably much like you, I’ve been watching myself through this whole gardening experiment with a bit of a detached amusement – but things just got pretty serious people. My very first ripe tomato and cucumber appeared on the very same day. Check this:
Pretty sweet, eh?
So, I cut them up (along with some shallots, also from the deck box), added a pinch of salt and pepper and a dash of oil and vinegar.
And then I did what any excited first time gardener would do.
I grabbed the only other human being in the house and made him eat it and then repeatedly tell me how amazing and wonderful and awesome it was. And it was indeed.
Here’s what’s on the horizon:
And lots of Tomatoes!!!
All in all I have about 30 little tomatoes and 8-10 cucumbers growing away. There’s also various onions and summer squash still in the works. I’m really excited to see (and by “see” I mean eat) the Gold Medal tomatoes when they ripen.
I also cannot wait to find the time to write about my recent road trip to Colorado – an epic adventure to say the least. Trust me, you can’t wait to hear all about it.
