I Love My Garden

It's hard for me to describe how much I enjoy growing fruits and vegetables. Of course, the money saving is part of it. The fresher, healthier food is part of it. The exercise is part of it. But there is something healing, even spiritual that happens when I work to grow things or deal with animals and livestock. I have subsistence, sustainable farming in my blood. All I'm missing is the farm.

I hate my camera phone. I really should get myself a real camera, but I'm including some seriously over exposed pics of cantaloupe, cherry tomatoes, summer squash and some yellow hot peppers I don't recognize. They are part of a "Caribbean Mix" of pepper seeds. I can assure you they are sweet and they are HOT!
