If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Garlic seed pod
After preparing the soil, planting, weeding, watering, picking off dozens of Japanese Beetles, and lots more weeding, the harvest comes. Earlier in the summer we enjoyed snap peas, swiss charred, kohlrabi, lettuce, chives and kale. Now we're harvesting zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, green beans and more kale. Soon to come are garlic, carrots and beets. I'm hoping that our late blooming egg plant and broccoli will mature before the end of the growing season.
We've endured a few visits to the garden by rabbits and one guest appearance by a deer. I've since tightened up the wire spacing in the garden fence where the rabbits squeezed through. I'm hoping the deer visits will be few and far between. Our 36" tall garden fence is no match for a motivated deer.
