well, omar obviously wasn’t content with a little pot of basil, so saturday we all ventured out and bought big barrels to start a small container garden. poblanos, jalapenos, carrots, and some herbs to start with. tomatoes are coming soon. and some kind of contraption to keep out squirrels, rats, and iguanas (all of which like to hang on our deck) is in the works.
and the rats and squirrels are really the least of my worries. the iguanas are bold and don’t just sneak out in the night or when we’re not around. but even worse, we’re evidently not the only family making babies around here. mr. and mrs. iguana are being fruitful and multiplying, too. i think omar was shocked when he saw my anger burst out when i first caught one of the baby iguanas munching away on our hibiscus. babies, people. the other day someone found my blog by searching for “roast iguana.” if you’re still reading, mystery searcher, do share any recipes you found.
