|Four horse troughs,|
three 5-gallon(?) pots
He bought 4 horse watering troughs for containers and 3 huge flower pots. He said they were horse troughs. One looked like a fiberglass bathtub, complete with drain, but I am not into bathing in the back yard. I prefer temperature controlled water and a tad more privacy.
|Tiny Sweet Bell|
Pepper and Bloom
We have a difference of opinion on salad tomatoes. I prefer Romas with less juice, and he likes chopped large juicy tomatoes that can also be sliced, hamburger style. We will have both as there are green tomatoes of both styles currently growing in the horse troughs.
To date there is one tiny sweet bell pepper.
|Tomatoes and Blooms|
Now we must battle leaf chewing insects, caterpillars, and a loopy canine aspiring to be a vegetarian.
We have known druggies on our block. Hope our little array of plants are not mistaken for adding and abetting our neighbors' illicit habits. Smoking tomato leaves or rolling bean leaves doesn't see like a suitable substitute for their particular palates. I suspect they are far more into cooking, dealing and trafficking.
It is interesting to watch traffic on my street. Having been in a profession where I was required to be able to identify legitimate and illegitimate drug user, I have a life-time of observation. Buyers, dealers, and users on my street frequent one house and arrive in an assortment of licensed vehicles. However, a large number are on-foot, riding bicycles, scooters, or smaller motorcycles not requiring licenses. You see, they have already lost their driver's licenses, soon to be second (or more) offenders.

Anyone who is creative has days, even weeks or months, when the Muses fail to deliver the inspirative germination, leaving us void of creative genius.
