The TBY Garden Of Hope. West Chester Organic Veggies.

Posted by Picasa


For new readers of TBY that haven't printed out and analyzed and framed all of my blogs posts, you may not be familiar with THE THAT BLUE YAK GARDEN OF HOPE. It's my Chester County vegetable garden. And it's underway for the season.

Now don't get all discouraged - I know - it doesn't look like much now. But print the photos out each week and post them up in a local rec center or your trailer park lobby and follow along as I grow things. Get the whole community involved and follow my progress. Some have been known to make their own color coding systems for better understanding.

Now I know many of my readers are not very smart, so by following along, you'll see that vegetables actually come from the ground.

It's true dummy!

Enjoy the journey!

WHAT?!?! Vegetables come from the GRAOUND in PA?! Here in WA they come from the grocery store, Zibbs.

;-)

Cora said...

Clearly I can't spell ground the first time round. Whoops.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora you know how strict I am with spelling.

Since you're in love I'll let you slide.

Eric said...

The good Dr. is becoming self sufficient, going 'off the grid', 'below the radar', 'incogn...', I should stop drinking now.

Cameron said...

Zibbsy, please tell me you're gonna throw some pesticides / insecticides / radioactivewaste on there eventually. You know how I feel about organic. It can still be the Garden of Hope.

Dominica said...

So much work !
I 'pick' them from a display in my Delhaize in my hood !
Do they grow in plastic wrapping, your veggies ?
^.^

Fancy Schmancy said...

Wow, I can't wait to get learned in the ways of the Great Doctor's growing stuff from the ground and stuff. Next thing I know, you'll be telling me stuff grows from dirt or sumpthin'.

Gaston Studio said...

What is organic gardening? Are you raising hearts and lungs and kidneys Dr. Z?

Greta said...

I'm gonna take it a step further and post pictures of the exquisite meals you make in our local food pantry.

Nice job, Zibbs.

Peggy said...

That picture oddly resembles a burial plot for about oh I'd say, 216. Your EXACT number of followers...coincidence?

Girl Interrupted said...

Um ... it really DOESN'T look like much ... but I guess that's why it's a garden of hope, right?

You should grow some french beans, they're my fave.

diane said...

Awwww, I like your little dust patch. We have one just like it in our yard. Can't wait to see how yours does.

Small Town Mommy said...

Vegetables don't come from the ground silly, they come from the grocery store. I have a black thumb so will be greatly impressed if you are able to make anything grow in that patch of dirt.

Anna Russell said...

I'm hungry now. You got anything there I can make some soup with?

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - dust patch? Oh I'll show you.

Actually the dirt in the foregound isn't the best.


Yet.

SkylersDad said...

I have a machine in my basement that produces my own Soylent Green. Does that count?

Andrew Rodriguez said...

If Vegetables come from the ground, I'd hate to find out where babies come from...yech!

Dr Zibbs said...

Storks.

Dirty, filthy, lustful, creepy storks.

I grow my stuff inside, under a light, behind a locked door.

Dude, I saw on TV that you can grow tomatoes hanging upside down on the porch at your elderly complex. So don't try to fool me.

The Bad Mutha Fudruckers Farm currently consists of a dead tomato plant, a bell pepper plant, and 2 zucchini plants that are threatening to bust down the door and strangle me in my sleep.

I'm looking forward to harvest time!

Gwen said...

The Garden of Hope is much bigger than I expected! Also, I want to come out there and plant a border of marigolds around it to keep the pests at bay.

Dr Zibbs said...

Gwen - nice. I do have some mint that coming up around the border. That helps a bit with the deer.

Kimmie said...

Yay! I can't wait for my veggies to arrive. Can't I just come pick my own?

I should make and jar a tomato sauce and sell it at Carlino's. We can name it after you.
