While you might not know and mainly because I haven’t posted on it – I’m a gardener. I set out to be a tomato KING this year. Please note: I don’t eat tomato’s, but Emily does and oddly enough I’ve found good vegetables make good neighbors. The more diversity in veggies from the garden the wider the smiles when you show up unannounced to your neighbors doorstep. So I got that going for me in the neighborhood.
So we don’t only have our focus garden – a plot of peppers and spices were have been tending to for 2 years, this year we added cucumbers, tomatoes and cantaloupes in a annex plot we established to wayward plants. We planted the seeds and waiting, nothing, nothing – so we go on vacation for 7 days and the mystery greenery exploded to our amazement.
Shaggy: This is, like, the opposite of what I wanted to do today
Questioning if it was real, we started our sleuthing. So we set in our lead investigator to go into the Horrible Horticulture thingy.
Fred: This is more embarrassing than the time you started cleaning your beans at Don Knotts’ Christmas party.
Velma: Oh please. You get kidnapped so much you should come with your own ransom note.
After crazy high jinx and a bunch of running around the our brave investigator, P, went into the green nexus – discovered it was in fact NOT just tomatoes, but a messy intertwined set of unruly plants that had found out that we just planted too many thing in a single location – an amateur mistake.
Shaggy: Scooby-Doo, where are you? P?
Velma: Let’s get jinky with it.
So P, then went to randomly pulling off pieces as a point of enjoyment.
So we have brought the garden back under control and we are harvesting 1-3 cucumbers a week, 2-4 tomatoes and anxiously await our cantaloupes. Upon review the green mess would have gotten away with taking over the backyard, if it weren’t for that meddling kid!
P: I did it, I did it ….
