Garden: Week 1

As you may remember from last week, we recently planted our garden.

One of my favorite comedians, Mitch Hedberg, has a bit about vending machines where he talks about "Snacks taste better when they fall. It enhances their flavor potential."

If the same holds true for garden vegetables, then we may have some tasty treats in a few weeks.

Although the garden has been blessed with direct sunlight and some rain, it has also been subjugated to a few footsteps from a 2 year-old, dirty paws from Pupp-E, and even some hail.

(Note to self, time to buy something to wrap around the corner posts to keep animals, including homo sapiens, out of the garden for awhile.)

And yet, despite our checkered history with (non-human, non-canine) living, growing things, we're pleased to see the first signs of life from the garden!

And the boys are really excited about it, too.

Whether that translates to them eating anything that comes from the garden, however, remains to be seen.

Have a good week,


  1. Good luck with the garden! I'm not that brave to build my own yet...
