On the Joys of Plant Personification...

Besides all the good it is for the environment and for the health of your family...besides all the mystic wonder and meditation-fodder you can find in its evolving seasons, the garden should be a place to have fun! My new blog-friend, Reality Jane, helps me remember that important garden postulate!

I have named all my garden plants :

Cherry Tomato: Chico

Regular Tomato: Big Red

Pepper Plants: Pepper, Patty, and Paul Bell
(FYI...My cucumber plant , Clyde, had his creepy little vines around Patty Bell this morning.)

Banana Pepper: Spicy Joe Johnson

Carrots: I just call them all baby sprouts...hehe

Cucumber : Clyde the Vine
(Look at my garden!!!! Can you believe....??? My cucumber plant, Cucumber Clyde the Vine , is trying to be somewhat aggressive and is causing some havoc in the raised bed...I have been trying to persuade him to wander toward the wood pile....He is a gangster, for sure.)

Watermelon: Melony Sweet

I know I'm weird......I..pretty much....... have no life.

May your garden always be such a fun place, Jane! You absolutely make me interested in the saga of your plants' ongoing lives.
