After six long summers, we've finally scored a plot in our community garden. JR was initially an enthusiastic gardener - he helped me pick out vegetables and flowers to plant, he picked out his own kid gardener gloves and trowel, he planted the seeds, he watered with abandon.

But it's been 3 weeks now, and his world is baseball all the time, so it's been left to me to squeeze in a little time now and again to water and weed. Monday evening I finally had the chance to thin out the carrots and radishes (selective reduction?) and while trying to choose which plants to pull and which to let grow, I found a radish. A full grown, round, red, radish bursting from the ground.

Tonight there was a second one. I feel so proud.
