tender, juicy, and tasty

i don't have a green thumb, or at least not a very good one, but the hot sun and local farmers' stands make me want to get my hands dirty. luckily, according to monkeys always look, anyone can keep a succulent alive. these hearty little plants are low maintenance and are growing in repurposed containers that would be perfect for a kitchen windowsill or deck bench. with sweet names like baby toes, topsy turvy, calico kitten, and hens and chicks, who could resist?


  1. I want some hens and chicks in my garden at my new house (cross your fingers word yet).
