Calm Before the Storm

A Small Heist

A Small Heist

Having a garden is like having a grocery store in your backyard, and it’s a great feeling to walk out without paying a dime. It’s almost like you feel guilty for “stealing” food. The only theft your really guilty of is from your self, and the hard work you have invested. This is the outcome, the payback, the reward.

In between helping a friend with her MP3 player, I found the above assortment, without much effort. I consider it the calm before the storm, as these plants are just barely getting started. The produce above includes Cucumbers, Squash, Tomatoes, Cherries, and a Merlot Pepper. Earlier in the day I had found some Black Berries, and a few small Blueberries, but they found their way to my belly before this photo was snapped.

Once again, this garden has amazed me. Above is a Pickling Cucumber, and I had no idea they were capable of growing so large. I’m not sure how I missed this one as it was growing, but grow it did… I bet this one could be made into a whole jar of pickles.
