Despite a completely insane month of September, the garden didn’t give up on me. Yesterday I harvested gorgeous kale, and last week we had more lettuce & herbs from our aquaponics system.
We are settling into our new normal as adoptive parents. Our new daughter has been living with us for about a month, and while we have been parenting, shuffling legal papers, and going to meetings, our green box gardens have been quietly doing their job. Ready to eat eggplants are on the menu tonight! Pretty flowers on the sweet potatoes remind me of beauty as well as function. Finally, heirloom purple Brussels sprouts are completely surprising me by living in this humid heat. I wonder what they will look like in a few more weeks? I wonder what we will look like in a few more weeks? Aloha friends.
