small successes

despite my malaise, one thing is thriving.

pepper plant, cucumber, potato vine, oh my!

the front window box. this year i spent the money to set up timed soaker watering. the shallow box has been difficult to keep hydrated without leaking into my basement. now the hoses run for 10 minutes at 8am and 8pm (avoiding the hottest parts of the day, for conservation) and the box is thriving.

cucumber and eggplant love

the box has two cucumber plants, a sweet potato vine, a sedum (that's buried in greens), calendula, marigolds, three eggplant plants and a lovely bush basil.

three baby cucumbers on their way

its nice to have something beautiful to look at when i walk in and out of the house each day.
