The Zen of Gardening

I did some gardening and planted some tubers yesterday. The tulips are starting to come up and I have something coming up that my brother gave me but I can't remember what it's called. It grows very tall and looks like a giant purple dandelion that's gone to seed. My brother was an avid gardener. He was kind of a tough guy but he was into exotic plants like palm trees, banana plants and bamboo but he was also into exotic flowers. I like things you plant once and it keeps coming back every year. My father used to always get young kids to plant crocuses which also keep coming back every year like tulips. Gardening is a positive peaceful activity.


  1. Check out Lupinus Albis. The seeds in the pod are pretty big and can be ground to make a low carb flour.

    1. Interesting, thanks. I didn't know it was popular in Egypt. I'm a falafel guy. The beans almost look like fava beans.
