Summer Is Here

Wow – it sure is hot out there.   Somehow though, the plants are persevering through the 90 degree weather and dry conditions.   I can just picture the plant roots underground, delving deeper and deeper to find nutrients and water, and breathing a sigh of relief (much like mine) when the sun starts to set and the evening cool arrives.

As summer rushes in, the greens and roots fade and make way for a plethora of cucumbers, squash, beans and, not too far behind, peppers and tomatoes.

Fresh Garlic!

And, coming soon . . . tomatoes.
