Just add water

...and suddenly things are very lush. I am hoping that this summer will be less wet than last year's virtual monsoon, however, one of the predicted characteristics of climate change is an increase in the amount of rain in New England: just another thing to worry about, along with economic collapse, plagues, wars, etc. Some days it seems like the four horsemen of the apocalypse are clattering by.

I have planted peppers, tomatoes and some other odds and ends in containers which are now scattered around the outside of my condo, to the probable annoyance of my neighbors, who get to see me puttering around the plants in a ratty bathrobe most mornings, cup of coffee in hand, channeling Tony Soprano and Vito Corleone.
