I have a mutual arrangement with my itty-bitty courtyard garden- I choose certain species of fruits and vegetables, give them a good home, nurture them to maturity, enjoy their product, and, if they’ve behaved like good children, remember a part of them to share with the next generation (I save their seeds).
They satisfy my needs.
And the world turns.
The question is…
|Bleeding Heart Vine
|My common Brussels Sprout
beginning to grow it’s prehistoric looking stalk.
|Our Meyer Lemons
are the size of baseballs-
and still not ready to pick!
just turning orange in the warm New Orleans sunlight.
