Gardening conversation with the fiance:


Me: My cauliflower is all diseased... bugs are eating the leaves.

Him: Fuck that. Grow nachos.


Can you even imaging how great that would be??? Yes. GROW NACHOS. I need to get on that shit.


In other news, every time Groove Armada comes on Itunes, Rickey (my dog) leaves the room. I think that means he has better taste than me. But that doesn't stop me from loving Superstylin'. (Yes, click there. Gets good at 0:17.)

Like that, thanks. I bet you guys are already aware of Santogold but if not, they're worth a listen.

my dog starts barking like mad whenever the new(er) Moby cd is playing. there is one song ("i like to move here"?) where it sounds like a dog barking. needless to say, that does not impress cocker spaniel demographic.

only a man would say something like that... which sucks because it's a totally *awesome* idea.

I say grow Doritos and my kids would sleep in the yard. Sweet. Love your guy.

The house you posted reminds me of my house... it is weird. The stonework is not the same, and the layout of my second story is different... but the garden vibe is the same. I think it is because I have wisteria (that still refuses to bloom) going on a trellis I welded around the front porch... and that one has a viney thing happening, too.

This picture isa good one to compare:

I've planted thyme next to my cauliflower and it has really helped to keep the cabbage moths from eating/destroying the cauliflower.
Love that house and garden!

So, did Groove Armada force every person in that video to dress like a Chicago lesbian or did Groove Armada inspire Chicago Lesbian chic?

It's a distinct look.

If you have to grow cucumbers to get pickles, surely there's a way to grow nachos. I think growing cauliflower and bell peppers (at least where I am) is more difficult than going to the farmers' market. How DO the specific insects know where to turn up? Is there an insect database/GPS that tells them where to munch?

fiancee? or finance? hmmm...

Lisa said...

Holy cow! Is that your house? It's STUNNING.

Your fiance is right: grow chili peppers. The critters won't eat 'em. At least, not more than once.

The Decorno,

Are you really advertising uranium ore from amazon? I don't know which is the more hilarious product, uranium ore or the Celerie Kemble book.

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

That's something the hubs would say. I don't know if there's a food item he loves more. And I love Rickey. Is he still perched on his blue throne in the kitchen?

Decorno said...

Fucking French words. Dammit. (...said as I shake my angry fist at the sky...)

Decorno said...

P Word... haw! You so naughty.

mary said...

Jones (huge poodle) sings along with Elton John and Eric Clapton, especially "Leila", Have a great week. Why not grow margaritas?

OK is it weird that I'm nearly 50 and Groove Armada still gets serious rotation on my iPod?

Yeah, I see you baby...

Nicki said...

Alright seriously did you clone my Fiancee? That is exactly the response I would expect mine to say. Plus, he drops the F bomb like his life depended on it. Hes from Brooklyn, this is his excuse.

It would probably go like this:
Me: Damn, my tomatoes wont grow.

Him: You fuckin kill everything, why dont you take that money and just go buy some fuckin tomatoes ?!

Decorno said...

Mary: You're a genius. Fuck nachos. Grow booze. I like your style.

Condo Blues said...

Do nachos grow on a tree or on little plants. I wanna know because I'm planning next year's garden. Will go great with the salsa fountain.

...love Maegan said...

um ...I used to have a dog named Rikki. funny. ...is that your house?!?!? and your garden?!?! wow. amazing.

Groove Armada's most recent album is really good also. I think you have better taste than your dog, no offense to your dog.

I'm dying of laughter at today's post and the comments even more.

1. I think your man has been talking to everyone else's men; as I know for a FACT Paul (my BF of 4 years, and an engineer) is still working the mechanics of getting nacho shurbs to actually happen.

2. I totally forgot about Groove Armada after college, but thank god for you, Decorno, you reminded me of how awesome they really are. And thanks for the recco on Santogold, Lolo. they're rad too!

3. I propose a potluck: you guys bring the nacho shrubs, the salsa fountain and the booze tree, I'll bring miniture money trees for everyone (they grow gold dollar coins) and some of those edible buttercup flowers from Willy Wonka.

done and done

And I am not ashamed.

Well, maybe a little.

My husband has that speaker--hell he has two of them--in a storage locker. I won't let them in the house.

Nachos would be a great addition to ANY veggie garden!
