But it is my farm none the less. And I refer to it as so.
I was speaking to Louis, trying to encourage him to make potty so that I could go to work. I was about to go back in, and to just leave him out there in the middle of my farm, when something caught my eye!
(A cayenne pepper was ready to be picked!)
It is amazing how much things change over night on the farm. You go to bed and the peppers are green. You wake up and one of them is red. (what does one do with a cayenne pepper?? i know that you can dry them and then grind them up and use them as a spice. but...what can one do with a pepper in its pepper form? ideas? will it burn my tongue off??)
After discovering the pepper (and picking it) I did a further inspection of the rest of the farm. Look here at what I saw!
(My snow peas are present and accounted for! There are quite a few pea pods, and I could just swear they weren't there the other day.)
(cherry tomatoes are growing like crazy! they are a bit larger than the cherry tomatoes i buy at the grocery store, but i'm thinking they should start turning red any day?)
(i had a full sized cucumber. i was just giving it a few more days on the vine. AND THEN!!!!! a freaking raccoon ate it. oh yes! stole my cucmber right off the vine and ate it. can you believe?!??!!? snarky little thing. so, we're back to square one with this one.)
And that, folks, is what has been going on down on the farm. A lot of growing, apparently. I told Louis that next year we were going to turn the entire back yard into a farm. I told him that we would be living off of the land. Nothing to eat that wasn't from the back yard.
