    Love your photos, froot_loopz! You are so right about appreciating the variety of shapes and sizes of what is meant to be the same veggies or fruit, too. Sometimes I think the way food is presented in the Stupidmarket is indicative of where our society is at generally – we must all conform & look the same to be acceptable. What an untruth that is.

    And gardening really is great therapy. Sunshine, a bit of hard work, having things that need our care – these are all things that help us along the way.

    Those capsicums and tomatoes look fantastic froot_loopz, as do the greens. I never get my capsicum plants in early enough for them to be very productive – I’m envious! And their ‘imperfection’ makes them look tastier IMHO! Those box veggie beds look great – where did you get them from?

    my ex brings them home from work. I have about 18 of them in my yard, he originally bought a couple home for me, thinking they’d be okay to plant potatoes in, because they are stackable. I havent tried them for that, but I might do this year

    Try some truck repair places, they generally throw them out.

    Good to catch up with your garden froot-loopz it’s all looking great.   There’s always lots of work to be done and something new to try, I find, keeps life interesting.
