plant porn

 

One squash plant in particular reminds me of Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors. Not that it's flesh-eating (God, I hope not) or anything; it's just that it grows so damn much! This thing doesn't quit! Even Mikey was like, "that plant gets visibly larger every day". VISIBLY LARGER. And he's right.

I'm excited about the emerging squashlings (can you seem them? there are around 5!), enthused by the ponderous pendelage of the almost-ripe one. It kind of makes me laugh, too - it looks so very phallic, doesn't it?! I mean, talk about plant porn!

When I said that to Mikey, he said that I was really doing the plant porn thing when I am looking at flowers. All those stamens and sexual organs and stuff. I know he's right because I remember in school in Fiji we had draw out the inner parts of all kinds of plants (Master Nikotemo did like to focus on the hibiscus) and I distinctly remember a lot of us crracking up in that juvenile Beavis-and-Butthead way over the sex-stuff. Stamen, heh, heh. Pistol, heh, heh, heh. Ovaries, heh, heh, heh.

Where are the organs for this one? In those inner petals? The center part? Gosh, she's pretty, isn't she? Simply stunning.

So is she - the Gerbers are really flourishing. Such darling-ness.

I don't think 'darling-ness' is a word. I need to dig up the thesaurus. Hang on. Nope, it's not a word. So, shall I say instead, "fetching"? Such a fetching flower!

 

Yes, you too, you too, you too, you too! Fetching! Alluring! Captivating!

Ambrosial!

And you, my little dear, are simply delectable. Especially as I know that you are going to be a delightful tomato.

Petunias! Lavenders! Dreamy, delight!

And my little stunner, Bougie. I'm working hard to keep her alive, let me tell you. She has not been happy for some time. I'm thinking she just needs some extra attention.

Like my poppies received. Oh, how I love me some poppies. They make me so happy to be alive.

 
As happy as I am when I suss around the plants and see this!

Mushrooms! Little forests of mushrooms! Growing all wild-like and free, right there under the artichokes and tomatoes. I have no idea if they are edible but dang, they are just about the cutest things I've seen this side of the Bay.

"Just about" - Moxie's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cuter

Yet another thing I relish about having a garden is the constant excitement. I love going out there and not knowing what is new but knowing that there's going to be something. For sure. It's just a matter of finding it.

Like Mikey caught these snails in flagrante delicto.

Like the water that came from the mighty collard over a week after cutting it. Amazing.
 

Like the big juicy red that I found at the very bottom of the strawberry patch.

Like the flowers that I did not lettuce produced. What delicacy!

Did you know that lettuce produced flowers? I sure didn't. Now what I need to do is figure out if those mushrooms are edible. And find out how to harvest us some lettuce seeds.

We want more of this action next year.
