a garden update

November 16 2014. 001 (8)

although i said that most likely i would not be posting pictures of our garden again, here it is

when Will and i found out that our landlords were putting our rental up for sale, we both looked at each other and said “fuck the garden. we’re not doing any more work out there”

it is a large garden, we have done a lot of work on it and we were just not about to do it for someone else

two weeks later we found out that the house was being pulled from the market

so, even though we are in the constant search of our own place to own, we continue to care for this garden

because it is ours for a while longer

but not everything is always pretty in the garden. one of our papaya trees got a weird fungus/mold on it and so i pulled it from the ground and tossed it (these pictures sort of make me itch)
