Gardening in Arizona—or at least in the low desert part of Arizona—is weird. Still.
These photos are from our back yard garden.
This has been in since the spring. A few eggplant came to be ripe while we were out of town over the summer, and since then, we’ve had nothing. My general policy is to water it as long as it’s alive. This little guy has a dozen friends on the same plant!
Every year, our watermelon grows well into November. Thanksgiving watermelon?? Last year, we picked the last in December, but it hadn’t had enough warmth and was not at all delicious.
The chard is great! Like other leafy greens, we cut off the leaves and it regrows. This is ready to be eaten and is the fifth harvest we’ve taken from it.
I took two shots of this plant (not a food plant) and can’t decide which one I like better.
The sunset was pretty, but there aren’t any good vantage points very close by. And by the time I found a decent place to stand, most of the pink was gone.
So I walked down the street to see what I could capture.
Yesterday morning, we were trying to stage food to enter a “starts with R” challenge.
That first one of rice is what I entered. It did well.
Photos this week are from The Kid’s school (took the camera with for pick-up one day) and from after Halloween.
The lead photo is a stump that, prior to getting into this journey, I never would have noticed. But it makes a neat photo.
Trash can. Not the best photo, but I thought the pattern was kind of neat.
Most candy here after Halloween is trash. The Kid chooses a couple of pieces and trades in the rest for a new toy (usually LEGO; sometimes plush). I decided to use some to build and take pictures because … why not?
