Garden 1999-2000
Or, We Experiment with Weeds

And it mostly doesn't work. Fortunately, photography makes even the worst looking garden better than it really is. These shots were taken so far as I can tell during 1999 and 2000; some of them, perhaps, date to 1998. Sad to say, the advent of an extremely barky pit bull next door has severely reduced my pleasure in gardening, and I don't take care of it as much as it really needs. But it's no fun to have a snarling animal go ballistic every time you weed; and Detroit is not the sort of place where neighbors can typically be wheedled into training their “guard” dogs into shutting up.
