in the garden

in the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

we have planted! 

since this little project started a bit late, we had to purchase some plants.  and since this is the karma garden, i specifically asked for non-monsanto tomato plants at the nursery.  rookie mistake:  i didn't have a list with me.  we were sold four heirloom varieties and one (lemon boy) is on the list.  i'm so sad to have to uproot pretty little lemon boy and take him back, but i refuse to support monsanto, even if it's only $2.79.   i thought if it was heirloom it would be safe.  lesson learned.

next year, seeds will be purchased from baker creek seeds to ensure total good karma.  big gratitude to meg and meg's mom for the amazing catalog. 

aren't the chicks getting big? 

i hope you get a little dirty this weekend.
