More photos! Because one is ripe! also, because I’m spending way too much time watching them grow. But I’m not alone – I had a garage sale last weekend, and a ton of people from the neighborhood, mainly middle aged women, told me that they love walking by and watching their progress, and complimented me on how good of a job I’m doing with them.
I take pretty much no credit though, because I have almost no idea what I’m doing, and mainly feel that I’m just lucky to live in a good climate. I do, however, fertilize them with coffee all the time (I read somewhere this was good?,) and fertilize with kelp/fish emulsion sometimes. This maybe seems to be helping? Also, very, very regular watering. Now you know all of my gardening secrets.
I’m kind of obsessed with Paul Octavious’s photographs right now. I feel like I could fill a room with his images, but I’m especially loving his Ruffin Clouds series
I’m not going to lie, I’m a little obsessed with watching my tomatoes grow

I’m officially a little weirded out. Anyone have advice? (click on the photo for a larger version)
yesterday was spent at the beach house watching professionals install new glass in our windows and hanging vintage floats from the eaves of the shed and the studio in the back yard with my dad. in the rain.
and of course, by that I mean that I was handing him tools and deciding on placement in between running back under the porch to stay dry. Despite being a little hesitant about this project, I’m super happy with how they turned out – way to go with the design idea Dad. This one is my favorite:

new plants: cherry tomatoes and succulents. not pictured: regular tomatoes, basil, chives, and cilantro.
The incredibly lovely and talented Lisa Congdon, who I’m lucky enough to call a friend, painted this amazing mural in the downstairs bedroom at the beach house last week:
Victoria wrote a lovely post about it that you can check out here. I’m so, so happy with how it turned out that I’m already talking with Lisa about her next project down there… stay tuned.
