And all of us lucky enough to be his neighbor are making out like bandits with the peppers and cucumbers and holy, cow, look at this watermelon taking over the drive! You can’t see them, but there are at least five watermelon fruits growing under all those leaves.
All the pepper plants are full – and dangerous. He says he went crazy in Home Depot and came home with so many that he ended up spreading out into my yard as well. But that’s fine with me as I get dibs as they ripen up.
He keeps trying to get me to take as many as I want. I tell him, I’m just one person man, I can’t eat that many peppers!
He even has some ornamental gourds growing in pots. Look at this lovely example!
I can barely keep cat grass growing; I have no idea how he manages to do so well with the pot garden. But there is nothing as yummy as a cucumber fresh from the vine. Now if only I could get him to plant a few beds of leaf lettuce for next year, I’ll be all set.
