Gardening & Writing

Gardening is a bit like writing…

It’s a hell of a lot of work to make something that feels totally natural!

But I do hope I’m a better writer than gardener, because my garden this year has been a series of disasters.

Slugs and cutworms killed off about half the things I planted this year, and the survivors have spent their summer slowly limping along. It’s almost the middle of August, and I have yet to get a single tomato, cucumber, or zucchini.

But at least I have one pepper who’s very happy to see me…

And I did manage to grow some hella sunflowers.
