Garden Update



Our garden for the year is just about finished. We think we did well for our first year on our balcony. We had a steady supply of lettuce through most of the summer. We got a good feed of snow peas out of it. So far, we've gotten one good size cucumber, and as you can see from the above pictures there appears to be two more growing. I recently cut back all of the lettuce and soon I'll do the same for the strawberry plants. They appear to be starting to flower; hopefully next year we'll get some fruit out of them.

Next spring we'll be in a house and hopefully we'll have a much larger garden.

I really do like this idea of small-scale farming.

Josh said...

I enjoyed it. Wasn't hard to start.

I'm much, much lazier than you.

Josh said...

I don't know. I'm pretty lazy.

Let's not destroy our health here in a lazy-off competition, mmmmkay?

Josh said...

My laziness is destroying my health.

I'm trying to run once a day. Taking supplements. You should try resveratrol. It really does give me extra energy.

Josh said...

You run?

I have a hard time picturing that; you were always anti-run, pro-bike.

Good stuff. Do you know how far you're running?

About 40 mins at setting six. I'm not running, actually, but walking really fast. Calorie burning.

Korea is not good for bikes because of the crazy drivers and I'm not interested in buying a good bike because I will be returning to Canada eventually.

Cardio is good. Thumbs-up!

Christopher said...

I still haven't lost any weight. :(

No worries. You're doing your body a world of good anyway.
