I hoard.

I've got it bad this year for anything I can possibly put in the dang dirt. My plant and flower budget is out the roof. But you know...whatever. I am hoarding, and I couldn't think of anything better than to hoard these lovely (mostly edible) plants.

I am learning a ton about bugs and roots and soils and sunshine. My veggie garden is in the process of mini-explosions of fun squashes, tomatillos(!!), tomatos, soybeans, potatoes, strawberries, blackberries and peppers of every shape and spice. I have packed in herbs like lavender and basil, and have been tucking in pretty butterfly perennials like no one's business. And lets not forget about the ridiculous amounts of succulents and cacti in every possible window I can fit 'em.

Sigh... If only I could do it full time.
