Garden life

We spent a lot of time observing these Anise Swallowtail caterpillars today. They absolutely love the fennel plants in our garden.


Nasturtium leaves are like lilypads! Water beads up and runs off of their surface.


We found this earthball mushroom, or Scleroderma Polyrhizum, in the garden. It is not edible, but is a useful garden friend that decomposes organic matter so that plants can eat. The dark mass is the spores, which we used to inoculate the soil and compost.

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
