Greg Becker's personal visual record of the triumphs and trials of an artist, illustrator and vegetable gardener.
Intrigue is great. As long as my fingers don't encounter a tomato hornworm - ICK!
just googled the tomato hornworm (I don't think we get them here - yet) I see what you mean, wouldn't like to get spiked on that!p.s.its also got an impressive scientific name - Manduca quinquemaculata
Oh a garden is constant intrigue... interest, plotting, curiosity. Never ending. I wish I had more energy to keep up with it all. The "intrigue" always gets me going... what has grown, who is out there (birds and lizards), Can I pick something today.
thats a feeling I get every time I go to the allotment. I find myself hurry past the other plots with increasing anticipation, I can not wait to see how things have changed since my last visit.
Intrigue, surprise, the mysterious shoots that appear, is that a self seeded leek or a stray tulip? And the one where you think I'm sure I picked all the beans there were - I love this one :)
thanks Joanna, runner bean teepees are indeed a mysterious world unto themselves. With every picking I always find one huge bean that has somehow been overlooked.
