Today was full of planting. First, we planted these pots (and some others that didn't make it into the picture) with herbs and flowers. Then, after some naps, we planted seeds for carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce, beans and squash in our community garden plot. We also transplanted some basil. In a few weeks we'll add in tomatoes and peppers. I love summer.

  1. I'm so jealous! I love gardens!

    Is this something T is really into as well?

    If so, I'm doubly jealous!

  2. T is really into it. He's never really gardened before, but is quite committed to it now. It was pretty cute teaching him how to take the plants out of their plastic pots and transplant them into the bigger ones. :)

  3. I'm grinning at your last comment. I love you two together.

  4. Aw. Thanks. I owe the interest in gardening, eating (organic) vegetables and grass-fed meat (if any at all) all to Micheal Pollan. T read Omnivore's Dilemma at my urging and then and all of a sudden he was on board with all these kinds of things.

  6. "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Pollan's latest quote. He was on Democracy Now! (Do either of you watch that) and had some interesting things to say about high fructose corn syrup...not the usual stuff that you hear. I also watched this documentary called, "The Future of Food." Pretty interesting. I think you and Trey would enjoy it.
