The shape of okra reminds me of tear drops and yet I do not feel at all sad when looking at okra…. well that is except for when my plans have been destroyed by various natural predators in my garden.
Sometimes I feel that my attempt at gardening in the summer is truly some sick joke I am playing on myself. After months of pampering, and after finally getting 5 yummy pickling cucumbers … I have now successfully killed several more plants it seems. Too much/ too little water, gazillion degree heat, too much or too little fish emulsion, etc etc. Wondering if these will be the last cucumbers I include in my art for many many many months ? AND I LOVE CUCUMBERS!!!! Ironically I have grown to also love dripping paint, which by the way is really not a good summer outdoor activity here either. The paint seems to dry before it even hits the canvas. I have been thinking… ( dangerous I know ) …this paint technique with this color paint makes me think that the desert dweller mother nature’s mascara is running .
I really need to get the seeds going or ( gasp) buy little plants from someone.
Hint to answer Q of subject line…
I love making/eating vegetarian Indian food and am always trying to note the values I learn from studying Ayurvedic cooking using food as medicine .
So all of this veggies are cooling, while one lowers all Dosha levels, and Two lowers Pitta and Vata but raises Kapha.
Can you guess which is which?
