Gardening Pics


Reading this week:

  • Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell (I wish they had mentioned his non-fiction works back in school, just to teach kids that the same guy who wrote Animal Farm can also write “…when I see an actual flesh-and-blood worker in conflict with his natural enemy, the policeman, I do not have to ask myself which side I am on.”)

Not a lot has gone on this week, so here are some pictures of my garden. The whole thing is vastly overgrown because I have been gone for a month and I haven’t been able to weed it because I had to clean the dirt and mold out of my house.

My pigeon pea forest is coming along nicely. In the middle is soy; the plants growing where I had made charcoal are pretty large and already have seed pods.

In the bottom of this profusion of green and in between the pigeon pea are ground nuts (peanuts). I was hoping they would have been ready to harvest by now but alas, no.

Aaaaand that is the garden. Hopefully something exciting happens by next week.
