My Partly Edible Garden

Inspired by Zack's big garden in a box I have small peppers in pots. As they ripen they will turn from purple to red to orange to pale yellow, all colors existing at once on a late-summer plant. Watching them will be a friendly companion from the world of nature and summer as I'm drawn feet first into the vortex of The School Year, the 180 Days.

You can eat the nasturtiums and the bronze fennel that shields my chair from the street. I've shown Phaedra and Eilonwy which flowers they can eat, and told them that you Have to Ask Someone who Knows, a Grownup. They're old enough for this nature lesson.
