don’t tell odin, but i’m still surprised when i ask him to tend to the garden and he happily complies without any tween surliness.
the strawberry pyramid i put in last year is already beginning to bear fruit!
we basically didn’t get much of anything out of the garden last year because of her – certainly not any tomatoes. so, now i’m putting fencing around the garden which is why i have 8 eight foot fence posts ( would later realize i need 9 ) and 100 feet of fencing in the jetta wagon. i didn’t think it would fit, but it did! the posts ran to within a few inches of the dashboard which didn’t feel like the greatest idea if i had to make any quick stops.
it till amuses me that around 6 years ago I took a photo of me stealing peas from theresa marquez’s organic valley employee garden plot ( she was then the ov chief marketing officer ) and somehow it ended up on the wall of our employee cafe ( seen here on the left ). And even more improbably it survived the hq fire from a few years ago, and was put back up after the rehab and redesign of the cafe after the fire.
when we worried imminent frost would kill the them we harvested a whole lotta hot peppers from our garden at organic valley. i have no idea what all the varieties are nor their hotness but that’s not going to stop me from whipping up a batch of what i like to call Odin’s Kick in the Asgard hot sauce.
what could possibly go wrong?
