I've become a rather spotty updater as of late. I'm sorry to say I don't see that changing any time soon. The masters program I started is intended for people going to work full time, but at the same time is busy enough that I can't balance full time work, reading and classwork, and rigorous blog maintenance. I will still update about exciting stuff like trips, but no guarantees on weekly updates about daily life.

That is with the exception of today which is both about everyday life and exciting things. Specifically, my fall garden has finally born vegetables. Edible ones. I mean I've been eating arugula and mixed greens for a while, but now there's also broccoli and cauliflower and cabbage. I need to document this exciting moment.
Arugula, greens, and in the back bed some brussel sprouts. I've yet to get anything edible from the spouts, but the plants themselves are thriving. 
My beautiful yellow cauliflower! It looks small here, but the plant is really big. It was slightly smaller than the cauliflower heads I buy at the grocery store, but now much. 

I have yet to eat the cabbage because I have no idea when to harvest it. Obviously something else has been eating it though and has not been dissuaded by organic pesticide. 
One of several broccoli heads. You can also see a red cabbage plant in the background. Those have not done so well. 
Thanks for any one out there still checking this thing! I promise to not abandon it entirely. I'll at least update every time my phone hits critical mass on cat photos, and I need to unload some.


  1. Congrats on your veggies! You've inspired me to go out and plant more lettuce and check out progress in my own garden.
