Earth Day

Farmer GBZ has been busy planting. Not for sustainability, but for peppers. The boy like peppers. So he planted bell peppers, jalapenos and habeneros. And not for Earth Day either - for eating. It just so happens I took this picture on Earth Day and it reminded me of my Life School Mage on Wizard101. He sure is growing up.

He's planted a variety of edible vegetables in the assorted container garden in our back yard - and surprisingly not only puts forth the effort to maintain them, but often reminds his mother. But container gardening apparently wasn't enough. This is his garden at his grandmother's house on their property which he also maintains. She waters it daily, but he does the weeding and the work. He's very proud of his garden, but I think he'll be even moreso once he's able to reap the fruits - or in this case the vegetables - of his labor.

How wonderful and exciting! Here is a boy after my own heart. Love the sign and the scarecrow. Did he make that too or is that the work of Grandma? I'm looking forward to updates on Garrett's Garden.

That is TOTALLY AWESOME! Way to go Garrett! Nothing more satisfying than getting to eat something you've grown yourself.

Maybe he'll share his jalapenos with me?

Yeah, collecting rain water is illegal in some states!

And some are illegal, even a victory garden for self-consumption.

It warms my heart to read this. Way to go, Garrett!

My youngest brother has a tremendous garden, much of it in peppers of all sorts, which cans into salsa on Labor Day weekend (it's been a tradition for many years now). I always look forward to family get togethers when he brings a jar or two, or when I stop in and he invites me to walk back to the garden with him and share some of his bounty.

That is awesome. Perhaps one day we will move out of the suburbs and live a sustainable life.

But only after they run high-speed fiber to the country :D
