However, the time has finally come! As part of my internship this summer, I helped out regularly at a "backyard hospital garden" with 13 beds. The garden grows a variety of foods, including tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, bunching onions, garlic, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, and squash; all of which would eventually become donations to the food pantry at the hospital, or be delivered to shelters and residences in the community. The garden even got featured on a local blog!

Colorful produce makes me smile
Long and lean chilli peppers
A tiny pepper flower!
Green tomatoes (I ate all the red ones before taking the pictures)
Given my "success" (some herb died miserably, looking all burnt), my future plan is to grow bunching onions (scallions). Reason? Because it's tough so it will grow in any condition, perfect for a lazy person like me. So for now, let's end with a happy sun flower from the garden!
