12 tomatoes

i enjoy gardening. sometimes though i wonder if its worth it. this year is my first real vegetable garden. once thing i learned is that a garden is more like a pet than a hobby. it needs daily attention.

after 6 weeks or so of watering most every night, the tomatoe plants have about 12 tomatoes on them. tomatoes

is it really worth it to spend how many gallons of processed city water on 12 tomatoes? a grey water collection system would make more sense. i ate carrots from the garden last night. the first edible thing the garden produced. they were delicious.

as i walked back to the house, without any warning what so ever, the blackberry bushes had their first ripe blackberries. they are also delicious. neighbor blackberries
