i felt like a farmer getting ready to harvest when i was talking to my friend beth last week on a ride. went something like this: me- 'oh yah- im growing zucchini, tomatoes, egg plant, cucumber, bell peppers, corn!?!, swiss chard, carrots, spinach, strawberries... oh and pumpkin, watermelon and cantaloupe in the front yard.' beth- 'how do you have time for this?' me- 'i don't know.'
the method to the madness is that usually when i get home from a ride or run i am already sweaty/dirty. i make a quick protein smoothie and head out to the back yard to water, weed and de-worm (ugh!?! the worst part) all of my little veggies. doing this post workout means one less shower and one less change of clothes because i always get dirty workin in the garden! and it means fresh veggies for later in the day!!
first two pics here are the second series of pictures i took a while back, the strawberry pot here:
the most current picture of it now-- swiss chard in hand for my green shake later... and proof i garden in bike gear. the nerd in me- confirmed!
these are the very first pictures i took... when the garden wasn't so big yet...
we have so many zucchinis right now... i tried making zucchini chips... was not a great success- will have to post the recipe when i figure it out. the tomatoes are getting ripe- i can hardly wait! and there are baby corns growing!!
to your health,
