I love other people's gardens

I am incredibly lucky to have an amazing patio in front of my apartment. It would be perfect for a balcony garden with lots of herbs, and tomatoes and peppers. I've been there for 3 years and so far no garden has materialized. Turns out it takes work, along with time and money, and a lot of thought.

I haven't gotten there yet, but at least I know people who have. I've been feasting on tomatoes brought home from work by D.


And my mom outdid herself this year. Along with monster zucchini, tons of herbs, butternut squash (which I thought you could only grow in winter) and bell peppers, she gave me these...


Cutest little red onions ever. I don't know why, but I think they are so adorable.

Someday I'll get my act together and then I can pay this garden love forward.

  1. Anyone can grow tomatoes, they just need sun and water. I love the way the leaves smell. Maybe next year ;) Those onions are divine.
