Carrots and cucumbers!
It is more exciting every time that I come here to Green Toe Ground. I have been harassing Gaelan about all the things i see.... "hey those fennel look ready! Can i have those cukes? You're growing parsley right?"
I know that I am jumping the gun but it is just so amazing to be surrounded with all this amazing growth. I have a few problems with patience. just a few. Anyway, its cucumber time and the sweet thin sugarsnax carrots have turned into brilliant subterranean icicles and I want them, in my mouth in my kitchen on your plate. God help Gaelan when the tomatoes start to ripen. You will soon see pics of me rolling on the earth smashing tomatoes into my eyeballs!
I really can't relate how much fun it is to pull your inspiration from the earth. It makes me breathe easier. It is my reason for being on this planet. I have been guided at times gently and at other times not so gently to this point my entire life. Divine providence is such a handy motivator! Thanks Nicole and Gaelan! It is wonderful that so many hard working craftsmen would dedicate their lives to an effort that betters so many other lives. This is the new selflessness that still can stand up to and hold hands with objectivist epistemology. We create our own eden in defiance of the blatant wholesale destruction of the rest of the world by those who solicit our trust and dollars. Am I ranting?
