and when she walks she walks with passion

Do you know what I just did? Umm, dug potatoes out of my own garden is all. Jealous much? Next I plan to harness the power of the atom to create cold fusion. It will be anticlimactic, but I want to give back.
My garden is magical. There is so much craziness going on out there, and it's amazing to think that I grew all those little buddies from seed lo, these many moons ago. To think that on Thanksgiving this year I'm going to be able to eat pumpkin pie made from a Blue Hubbard squash that I grew with my own paws? You can't buy that kind of satisfaction. And I'm really, really sucky at gardening, you guys! But somehow I was able to stay on top of it while it really mattered, and now the weeds are subdued enough that I don't have to worry about them too much.
The tomatoes are disappointing, though. I think they're too crowded to get red. Blurgh. I only have little yellow Sun Sugars, which at least are really sweet. But if I don't get an open-faced tomato and Red Leicester sandwich this summer then I'm afraid I'll have no choice but to build a massive movable disk that will block out the sun and then NOBODY gets ripe tomatoes and EVERYBODY has to use my cold fusion electricity. I decided not to give back.

too crowded to get red -- that is my fear for my own tomatoes.
your garden is awesome.

You are such a compelling writer. I love to read your vignettes. And, I also love your garden. I'm using a baby born in May as my excuse for not even planting this year. I'll try not to covet your lovely vines. By the way, I love the G-Diapers. Thank you!!!

You're garden is lovely. I'm quite as green as your squash, with the pic. of your potatoes.
