garden green


This year we are growing together. 

We have eight tomato and pepper babies on the balcony and the beginnings of an herb garden in the office. There is a lemon tree in my living room. Kenneth is also growing a potato in a pot. I always get so nervous after starting a garden. I feel such responsibility and also such ineptness. I know next to nothing about growing food and that knowledge (or lack of) overwhelms me sometimes. This year I am reminding myself that all I can do is my best and that anything that happens will be a learning experience. In the meantime, it is simply a joy to be surrounded by living green things. 

A home is more beautiful when it is filled with plants.
