The Plot

is also a song by the White Rabbits.
(Good music to wield a hoe to, even.
Click on the link to hear it.)

Team Hoe got bus-ay on the garden.
It's larger than our house will be. By far.
Planting starts tomorrow. Early, I'm told.

We spent almost $50 (that's a lot to unemployed folk) on a gazillion seeds:
heirloom tomatoes (will probably go in a greenhouse since it's late)
broccoli, cauliflower, eggplants, gourmet carrots, peppers
sage, parsley, rosemary, dill, mint, oregano, basil, cilantro
several kinds of lettuce (or as we say: la-TOOS) and spinach
spaghetti squash and zucchini!

Plus my parents already planted some cantaloupe,
watermelon, and boring ol' regular tomatoes.

We're also looking for:
sweet potatoes
a citrus tree

Last week or so they got a truckload of manure to dump on the garden.
I found this guy when we weeded tonight!

With two busted legs, he'd be on his way to the glue factory.
Luckily, I saved him.

And this is the tree that provides shade for the garden in the evening.

Tank tops are coming out!
