in the garden


i spent some time in the veggie garden today.
pulling weeds.
staking tomatoes.
catching hornworms. (very satisfying)
hand pollinating cucumbers.
cutting down my amazing lettuce that just bolted. (i would insert a sad face emoticon here, but i don't believe in emoticons)
harvesting radish seeds.
and just feeling generally satisfied at my accomplishment. i am finally a green thumb.

i was just wondering where you get your polaroid film at for polaroids? i can't find it anywhere!

Miss B said...

I don't believe in emoti-thingies either! (and here she smiles)

To the previous commenter, Maloree -- you can order it from Amazon.com (that's where I got my last supply, anyway)

But you might have a better (read: cheaper) source...?

hornworms are the grossest things...even mores so when they've been infected with wasp eggs.! You should be very happy with your garden, Jen!

Great photos, I had a little tomato plant a while back and it is so rewarding when they grow and after a little bit of TLC (tender loving care) you can finally eat them!
Good luck with the gardening!
