Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

The Pepper Was Picked
Yes, the People's Garden in front of the Department of Agriculture Building is nice, but the garden in our backyard patio is much better. The reason it is so much better is that we can actually take what is growing there. A single sweet yellow pepper was plucked today. I'm not yet sure what it will be used for yet - it's a surprise. Here's hoping the rest of the crop continues to do as well... cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, and red peppers. They really look nice among the perennials and annuals. Why wouldn't anyone grow vegetables? We used to plant them in the Midwest, but the season was short, and the garden was on the north side of the house. This spot is perfect for just about anything!
