Wife, writer, tinkerer, grower of food. I'm happiest outside our rambling farmhouse with a basket looped on my arm, picking dinner from the garden. That's joy right there. Please follow along; I'm so glad you're here!
My garden is his favorite place, and it's pretty awesome. I can't tell you how many times I've been out there, weeding or harvesting or just checking on things, and he's popped out with a chirp.
The garden is late-season slumpy. I'm still not really getting tomatoes-- the damn deer eating green tomatoes all July really cut into the season. But, the soup beans are drying on the vine, and the green beans are rebounding, and I have a nice row of carrots that are about ready. It's getting to be greens season, and I am glad about that. I'm not really ready to let go of summer, but at least I know the nice weather will last another couple of weeks. And I plan of soaking up as much sun as I can.
Hope everyone is spending today doing something fun and relaxing.
