And, thus, an idea was born.
Each week – for the last five weeks, and for as long as our gardens can be sustained in this God-awful heat – the three of us submit photos for a weekly feature at RVA News. Garden Wars is supposed to feature photos of that week's harvest, one glamour shot of a plant or vegetable, and a photo of our equally adorable children in the garden environment. (Sometimes, we break the rules – tossing cute children and cute dogs into the mix...)
As of last week, the race remains close. Scott Pharr is in the lead with two victories, while Ryan Smartt and I each have won a single week. This week – Week Five – has Ryan and I neck-and-neck.
