Eagerly awaiting their crispy destruction

April 25, 2011

The first signs of life have appeared in the veggie garden – the arugula seedlings have sprouted.  I feel a disturbing combination of parental pride and an eagerness for them to grow up big and strong so I can nosh them to bits.

Drink up, little ones.  Soak up that sun.  You will be a tasty pesto soon!

    Life! You’re so ahead of us… It may be years before I’m ambitious enough to actually plant a garden. Yes, the rhubarb and raspberries are starting to grow in the backyard, but that doesn’t really count, does it?

      Fruit counts absolutely! Unless I steal it all before you get a chance to harvest any. And then it counts as being my own harvest?

    First off, please teach me how to take awesome close-ups with our camera. That photo is very impressive.

    Second, Auntie M, don’t be so modest. Your blueberry bush is legendary around these parts.

      Make your aperture as big as it’ll go, back up and zoom in as much as you can, then breathe like a sniper.
