Three's a crowd...
The corn in my Three Sisters Bed is about hip high now (but of course, I'm only 5'1" so to some others it might only be knee high - - who measures this stuff anyway?), and technically, it's time to put in the pole beans.  I'm actually afraid to.  The Casert...

The one to beat!!!! 2014 edition.

Watering troubles
On Sunday, I turned on the faucet to water the garden.  The Pipsqueak was playing in the pool, and I thought it was a perfect time.  I could do double duty: keep an eye on her, and get a garden chore done.  Then she asked for a towel.   They were inside, on...

I've been away a while... but the garden was waiting for me.
It's been a while since I've posted, and it's not that I've forgotten about my blog - - I haven't!!!  There have been a lot of things changing around here. 1. First and foremost:  SCHOOL ENDED!!!  Oh yeah, now I have all this time on my hands, right?  Nope!...
