Since I last reported, my garden is thriving! I was nervous because I planted late from seed but everything seems to be doing well. We visited last night as a family to water and weed (but as you will see from the photos I need to go back and weed again as the bugs were too much for the kids!) and it was a fun way to spend the evening of the Summer Solstice.
The garden is a fun summer project. I've met some of my gardening neighbors, and enjoy the birds and animals I see during my visits - everything from red wing blackbirds, pheasants and woodchucks! During one visit I met a police officer and her dog, and learned they bring the dogs to the fields for search training.
Hopefully in my next update I will have picture of veggies!
