July Veggie Haul
Following up on my mutant squash post the other day I thought I'd post a little inventory of the latest haul out of this year's garden. My tomatoes aren't doing very well, I've been having some trouble with my cages.
One of those mutant squashes broke free of its moorings up near the top of the deck. It crashed down, eight pounds times ten feet of falling damage and literally took out one cage, knocking it over and uprooting the tomato plant within.
Everything else is coming along quite well though, I've got plans for the poblano peppers, and it seems that once my 'maters come in (if they do) I've got more than enough for a few more rounds of Mount Doom salsa!
It was a nice feeling when my kitchen sink was filled to the brim with stuff I grew myself. This is really why I garden, I get to try new things, and I get to eat a lot of stuff I didn't have to buy at the store. Look at those bell peppers, they're huge!
If you've been around, you know this isn't just a gaming blog. Having said that I'll see if I can cross the streams however. I've had an idea of taking some of my produce and making some tabletop terrain out of it. Hmm, I don't know if it'll work.
