The Life in my Stilettos

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world. – M.M.

In my garden…

Three Raspberry bushes, two blueberry bushes, one blackberry bush.  One Gooseberry bush, and a Red Currant bush.  Concord Grapes have also found their way into the garden.  Two strawberry bushes, one hanging, and another buried deep into the soil.
Dozens of peppers are found in my garden.  Habañeros, Jalapeños, Cubañeros, Hungarian Wax, and Green Bell peppers.
Brandywine tomatoes litter the garden, some Cherry tomatoes and more Brandywine, due to a mishap at the nursery.  Growing beautifully are six Purple Cabbage plants, beautiful and purple.  Red onions, though I’m not sure what to make of those thus yet.  And a Big Max Pumpkin – which literally is BIG MAX.  Though the pumpkins themselves have not begun to grow.  One Honey Dew melon plant grows, and I think about the plants I will try to raise next summer, zucchini, green lettuce, spinach, watermelon, different types of herbs and spices in a window box…. definitely some regular tomatoes, and loads more.  I could easily be a farm girl.  Or a city girl – as long as I have some big pots for peppers and tomatoes and some beautiful flowers on my balcony.
