|The vegetable garden this year|
When we first started working on this property Jody would generally consult me on any landscaping ideas. If the apple trees looked too crowded he would ask if they needed trimming. If it looked like I needed bigger beds he would ask if I needed some digging done. But somehow things have changed.
|Raspberries ripened this week|
|well maybe they need to be thinned a bit.....|
A few nights later he says he thinned out the lettuce for me as "it gets really wet and full of bugs when you let it grow too much".
|zucchini is on the menu once again|
I guess after 10 years together my gardening affliction has finally begun to wear off on him. Seems if I talk about gardening enough it will eventually start to stick.
The latest evidence of this has started showing up on my plate. Almost every night dinner includes salad. Fresh lettuce, cucumber, zucchini, carrots ..... and Swiss Chard?
|Bright Lights Swiss Chard|
So I mentioned - Great idea adding that chard to the salad....
and he retorts - THAT WAS SWISS CHARD?! You told me I could put beet tops in the salad. I had no idea that was chard.
oh good, he hasn't changed that much yet
* Fries with the Works is, to my knowledge, an island thing. A plate of fries covered in onions, peas, hamburger and gravy. My arteries are clogging up just thinking about it.
