The eggplant, the carrots, the beans, the basil, the beets, the cucumber, the tomatoes, and the peppers all grow rapidly in this heat and sun and afternoon rain.
It’s a cozy feeling to know that we’ll harvest so much. My daughters love checking the garden, waiting.
On the far side of the yard against the fence, we pick blackberries each day. And we eye the raspberries that will come soon.
