Oh, garden, my garden…

Alas, we’ve hit that point in the gardening season when I’ve kind of lost interest and keep thinking ‘They’re plants – they don’t need me! They’ll be fine.’ I’m really only actively looking after two of them now because the tomatoes have succumbed to whatever is responsible for the moldy undersides (the inconsistent watering, apparently), the strawberries are growing in too many directions, and the eggplants have been idling away for months now with no changes.

I’m still taking care of the lemon tree because the first little tiny meyer lemons have appeared! And because I crave Michael Chiarello’s approval…

Apologies for it being blurry, but it was getting dark out there and I didn’t want to risk being caught outside after sunset with the other plant.

The avocado.

Basically, I’m only looking after this one still because I’m afraid that if I don’t, it is likely to murder me in my sleep. I still can’t tell you what I find so unsettling about this plant, but just look at it, with its weird leaves. It’s shifty…
