Gabe and I talk extensively about what we are going to do when we have a home with some land around it. Have you ever seen P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home on PBS? That is my absolute dream home. An old farmhouse to update, plenty of land for a myriad of animals and a huge garden. Of course that can only happen if we happen upon some huge financial windfall and become independently wealthy. Being realistic I would love to have that same home, a handful of animals and the same large garden. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to go into your own garden and pick the vegetables you need for you meal. We keep some fresh herbs all year, and they make a huge difference. Fresh salsa with garden fresh (not grocery store, GMO, overpriced) tomatoes . there are so many possibilities! Besides, I’m paying out the nose for my Horticulture degree, I might as well get something delicious out of it.
Reggie thinks he would like to be a garden cat. Here he is inspecting the strawberries.
