a garden update. a vegetable garden

March 02 2014 048

we live nearby a beautiful vegetable garden

a vegetable garden that provides delicious vegetables and herbs for a nearby top rated restaurant

the main care taker of the garden is Tiffany

Tiffany not only cares for this large garden but, she also has her own in front of the home she lives in and she has a four acre farm with some friends in north miami

she is a busy young lady

i love to stop by this vegetable garden not only to admire it but to also sponge as much free knowledge from Tiffany who is always so kind at sharing what she knows

and sometimes, knowledge is not the only thing i leave with

i also leave with pockets full of tomatoes gifted by her

on this particular late afternoon we helped her get rid of some very nasty hornworms that had invaded her tomato plants overnight

hornworm. we had these in our garden last year and four of them devoured one of our huge tomato plants overnight. they are camouflaged to blend with the leaves, they are so alien looking, have green blood and they completely make my skin crawl!
