We have flowers in the front and side yards, but we still grow stuff you can eat on the back forty.
Mrs. bullmikey is Asian and she likes to plant stuff from home.
The Italian part of me has to grow tomatoes and some roasting and frying peppers. Plus I like to grown my own basil and mint. You can never have too much fresh basil and I like to put a few mint leaves in my tea once in a while.
mrs. bullmikey grows hot peppers (Asian chilis, or what I like to call "Tiny Dingies of Death") string beans, and snow peas; she also grows these bumpy cucumber-looking things called ampalaya (bitter mellon) that I really like (you stir-fry it with some peppers, onions, garlic, and ground beef and it’s really yummy).
Anyway, growing stuff is like therapy for mrs. bullmikey and me; plus it frequently distracts her from thinking of reasons for being mad at me, which is always a good thing.
The bunnies aren't as bad as I make them out to be, but they do nibble a bit here and there.
