This year, Cathy has gone to great lengths to convert the back yard into a productive garden. Courtesy of her efforts and some (mostly effective) deer fencing, we have — corn. And squash. And beans. And raspberries. And strawberries. Also red leaf, romaine, and collard greens, plus rainbow chard. And broccoli, and carrots! And tomatoes, and some chives!
Even with the depredations of the deer (Bambi nibbled most of our strawberries, and Rudolph slept on our corn, destroying half the crop), we have been rolling in fresh produce.
After a long hot stretch, we finally got a nice dose of rain. Everything smells delicious, and well hydrated, and rich.
