Plot 43

I just got a plot in the building's garden and I'm so excited!

The only things I do not care to grow are flowers. Yes, they're pretty, but it's so much more exciting and gratifying to eat what you've grown yourself.  Must....resist...."fruits of your labor" pun!

What should I grow? Perhaps a root vegetable so I can be surprised when I finally pull them up? It'll be like having a baby...and I'll send out announcements: Baby Carrot - 3 oz, 2 inches. Or maybe some gongura leaves so I can make one of my favorite chutneys, while using its similarities to a certain illegal substance as a fun ice breaker for my fellow gardening biddies. You know how I like to multitask!
Photos from home. Those tomatoes and that pepper were still a little orange and dark green, respectively when I plucked them, but apparently you're supposed to do that and let them finish ripening on your windowsill. Well, I don't know if you have to, but that's what my mom said and look how bright red they got!

Cool! Jon got me a hydroponic planter. I'm going to try strawberries and tomatoes. Do the gongura leaves!

Oh, I like those...they look so futurist. What does it look like? I think both of those types of plants need something to cling to and grow on, like a vine, right? Or will it be hanging down from the ceiling? You're going to love it!
