Brigid Brigid, happy and fulgid, how does your garden grow? Quite well, it seems!
As you can see, I haven't killed anything yet! In fact, everything is getting bigger and brighter. A few days ago, I tied my cherry tomato plant to its trellis with some leftover pillowcase fabric from the skirt I made. Check out all the snapdragons! I also seem to be revitalizing the parsley (on the right). And -- wait, what are those tiny sprouts I see?
Little radish plants! Five poked through, but I had to thin one out. Look how perfect they are.
They're reaching for the sky. I can just hear the "ehn! ehn!" sounds.
Over on the far left, I today spied another new friend.
A teeny lettuce friend to be. Oh little sprout, how delicious you shall become.
If you let your eye migrate upward, you'll see the pièce de résistance:
It's a baby tomato! I am so proud of this little guy. In fact, after I first discovered him, I had a nightmare that he was taken from me. I know how sad it is to become so attached to a plant, but I'll admit that I have. I can't wait to eat him. :)
And all the while I was snapping photos of my little urban jungle, I had the feeling I was being watched.
Gladys Kravitz ain't got nothing on my little mutt.
