We built this garden on rock and roll.

Once upon a time there was a very nice and pretty girl who lived in a tiny studio apartment with an herb garden in her windowsill.
One day she met a handsome boy who later would ask her and her two tiny yorkies to move in with him... and his two pups....and his cat.... yep..... that makes 5 animals.

The girl was so excited for her herb garden to move outside into the sunshine and she asked the boy if she could have a tomato plant to go along with it. The boy loved her very much and said she could have 2 tomato plants.... which would soon turn into 6 tomato plants, 31 strawberry plants, 8 green bean plants, 2 grape vines, blackberries, raspberries, banana peppers, bell peppers, okra, broccoli, lettuce, arugula, carrots, onions, red onions, green onions, lemons, oranges, watermelon, zucchini, cucumbers, beets, lavender, guavas, artichokes, fennel, dill, mint, chives, garlic, sage, cantaloupe, squash, and last but not least..... giant pumpkins that will be 500 pounds.

I am not kidding. Not one bit.

And because credit must be given where it is deserved..... my green thumb is... well, not so green. 
However, tempt a boy with homegrown veggies on the dinner table and a girl's garden will magically grow. There is nothing like fresh veggies from the garden for dinner. 

I think we should get a chicken coup.

  3. That would be more of a chicken coup (as in d'├ętat). If only we could teach the dogs to lay eggs.
