"i found a little plot of land in the garden of eden...
i tilled it with my two hands and called it my very own."

i've got four tomatoes over there on the right: a manzano plum tomato, a razzleberry pink tomato, and a chocolate cherry tomato that is brown, and a sunsugar cherry tomato that is orange.
and in the pots i have spinach, some rosa bianca eggplants and a black beauty eggplant, two sweet pepper plants, italian parsley, cilantro, zucchini, globe basil, sweet basil and purple basil, thyme, oregano, and chive seedlings, orange and pineapple mint. i also have the little orange tree sprig danny's mom brought me from florida. and i'm gonna also plant some red beets.

it's gonna be a good summer.
