How Does Your Garden Grow?

After I got back from yesterday’s bike tour and crashed out in the livingroom watching the finish of the marathon I woke up to find my Baybee hard at work clearing and cultivating along the north fence, the better to get a garden of ‘maters and spinach and lettucesses growing.

I later recovered enough to pitch in with the backyard’s overall de-weeding and raking.

P.S. Just to update: In regards to all that enthusiasm for trying out yesterday and perhaps playing in an adult baseball league this season. I don’t like to think it evaporated like the rains from last weeked that postponed the previous Sunday’s tryouts. More like it was replaced with the reality that without much much much more practice I have neither the skills nor the willingness to make the required commitment. Maybe next year.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
