looks like a nice little garden. i love the process of watching things grow from seed. the miracle of life unfolding before your eyes in slow motion.

you'll find out soon enough, but i'll warn you in advance: cucumber needs a lot of space, and will vine out in all directions and probably encroach on plants several rows over. squash also need tons of room. it's not unusual for squash to leaf out and grow a couple feet high and several feet wide.

Seriously, when the "bean" does "sprout" (this being k0de for your kid being born, and not some unfortunate testicle condition), it's so frickin' awesome.

It's like bacon times ham.

Keep the camera handy, because it's amazing how boring other people's newborns are, yet how every moment of your newborn's life necessitates constant documentation.

The smile that makes you feel all giddy inside...


...followed by the inevitable "I think I just crapped my pants" look.


Soooo TINY!


And so very, very sleepy...

I don't want to harsh your horticultural dreams or anything, but those eggs you planted aren't going to come up. That's not where they come from.

They come from rabbits.

my wife seriously asked "don't egg's come from chickens?!?" I plan on making a shitton of eggplant parmigiana and freezing it for later consumption.

i fear that my little plot will be overcrowded soon, i'm thinning rows out but i wish i would have made the rows alittle further apart, lesson learned. The cucumbers are next to the chicken wire fence so they can grow up on it and i'm gonna stake and string the tomato bushes once they get growin. I didn't know about the squash growing so big...

I dunno. I don't think it actually felt real until about a week after he was born. And I even had the little guy doing punching bag practice on my bladder for 9 months.

There is something very surreal about all of it. I imagine it stays that way until about the 12th or 13th kid.

Hell. From the first "This is it!" contraction until they put the kiddo on my chest, baby daddy and I just kept saying to eachother, "Holy sh1t! Is this really happening? Holy sh1t! It's really happening."

In summary:

Camera. Bacon. Ham.

I think we're going to do Asian eggplant this year. We did globes last year, and they were great because we were picking them very small, but I like the long, skinny Asian ones because the skins are thinner.

i'm gonna try to harvest the veggies young or atleast before they get too ripe to keep the plants producing and to have tender veggies. I want to make pickles out of some of the cucumbers and cut them up into relish and do some canning with the other stuff. I'm not familiar w/ Asian eggplant but i'm already planning to do some different crops in the fall like corn, cabbage, vidalias, greens and other "colder" type plants.
