All decked out

I have sad news. Dustin is leaving for 3 months. Yes, I have to learn to take out the garbage. Luckily, Dustin had taken advantage of some good weather in May and refinished the deck. One less thing I have to learn to do this summer. It is now clean and recharged with a sleek waterproof layer!

This picture was taken last month, just after we brought back our veggies from the greenhouse. It's amazing how much they've grown since then.

We planted the zucchini, cucumber, and tomatoes in the long planter giving them lots of room to grow.

And did they ever grow!

The basil has tripled in size. We've been enjoying lots of basil-tomato pasta and Margarita pizza.

Even the peas are nice and fat as they tangle their way up the trellis.

When we first planted the chinese veggies (菜心 -- choi sum) they looked so cute all bunched together in the hanging planter. Big mistake. They had no room to grow and before long, they were skinny and tough.

We tried one more time; spaced them out and offered them lots of fertilizer. Now it resembles something I can enjoy with a drizzle of oyster sauce. Mmmm.

It's really too bad Dustin won't be around to enjoy all the garden veggies. He'll be in North Carolina eatin' grits and fried chicken, saying "y'all" all the time. Anyone up for a roadtrip? We can bring dustin his 菜心!
