What can be done in 11' x 11' with cheap municipal compost, one bag of $10 fertilizer and almost entirely from seed. Maybe another ~$40 in seed starting supplies if your starting from nothing, i did spent ~$60 bucks on plastic greenhouses but a few sunny windows would do.

Scrub Jays snacking on little green cabbage worms in my wake. I think this fellow was from last years nest in my orange tree, seems acclimated to the bagpipes.

This mornings mini harvest. Some okra pods, amaranth leaves, 3 kohlrabi, and 2 lemon cukes.

If you live in a crap place with rules against front yard you can probably sneak in a nice spineless variety. Heavy producers with amazing flowers, ornamental foliage, and a strong vertical presence.

My gardens Snail Hotel. Its one massive clonal colony of Aloe maculata. I should break it up and clear out the mollusk menace, but its all from a cutting my grandmother gave me. Its hard to risk it.

A snail my daughter found with a love dart still embedded. I suspect this one is a casualty of love.

Some pics from my garden this week. A mix of flowers from my ornamental bed (loads of California poppies), a huge (30' around) squash, a mix of different beans and tomatoes, and corn cobs forming up.

A lovely volunteer. I think it's one of the wild type tomatoes i was experimenting with last year.

A dove/pigeon has decided to setup nest in an old fountain in my backyard. 2 eggs so far.

400 running rpi os lite with a hat and a 3.5 resistive touchscreen. Decided i didn't need a GUI on this toy.
