I've been proud of my radishes, raised at Silver Oak Farm.

I've been stoked with my Green Beans and Peas.

I've raved about my Square Foot Gardens, pleased to have a little slice of the world cooperate with me enough to grow some tasty fresh vittles.

Today, however, I've met my [garden] match.

Well, actually, I met my Garden Guru many weeks ago.

It was this day I realized the full potential of this Guru Guardianship I find myself under the tutelage of.


Wanna know why?

It's because of these babies:

Yes, these cucumbers, in this here half 55-gallon drum.

You see ~ these cukes are a mere two and a half weeks old.

From seed.

Mere fledgling babes.

Infants, I tell you.

Except they are maturing at an alarming rate.

I fainted when I heard the facts concerning their age.

Then I drooled.

Then I committed even further to the task before me.

That of learning absolutely everything this man has under his craw.

All of it.

No tidbit of information left unturned.


All mine.



I might share.

Here's the eggplant specimen he's shown me.

Go ahead.


I did.

And then, I pruned the tomatoes.
