|Our dwarf Naval Orange tree is pregnant with lots of promising little fruits. Oh how I look forward to fresh oranges off my own tree!|
|Plants are ridiculously expensive. My solution: reuse the old containers and plant seeds. I have lots of sprouts already coming up. It will save money, yes, but for those with less patience than money, it is quite a painful lesson.|
|Along our walkway I have planted thyme and will put blooming chives behind it. I've also planted lemon basil and oregano. I figure, if the kids decide they want to chow down on my plants, at least it won't merit a call to poison control.|
It feels good to see that the plants that we planted years ago are thriving, and it encourages me in profound ways. The work that we put in now, the tilling of landscape, the tender care of seedlings, the continual removal of weeds, will result in a fruitful and beautiful yard in years go come. Such a metaphor for life!
