back to the garden


Well maybe it is just the time of year,
or maybe it's the time of man.
I don't know who I am,
but you know life is for learning.
We are stardust.
We are golden,
and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden.

-Joni Mitchell

New Thesis:  I Am A Farmer

The backyard garden is loving this daily sprinkling of rain, and we’ve been eating salads from it for weeks.  It’s become a daily ritual for my wife and I to walk the garden before she leaves for work in the morning and after dinner at night (though I flee the children a couple of times a day to hide out there, as well).  Featured are… our first tomato and cucumber, a new red yarrow plant that I intend to use for witchcraft or something, onions, a grip of pepper plants, herbs and lettuce, and whatever those pretty blue things are that I assume I can’t eat.  Also, my precious Grapes of Wrath; so named because they will not die, are stuffed randomly in the laziest spot I could find (between two beds at the moment), and annoy my wife to no end.  It’s a smiling annoyance, but exasperating nonetheless, as it brazenly puts into relief my my unstudied, spontaneous, lazy approach to gardening against her diligent, well-researched, helicopter mom approach to gardening  Every other day, she’ll shake her head at those vines and say, “If those things fruit, I’m never gonna hear the end of this…”  

Damn straight.

impressive!
