this n that

Yay 2010 and new garden beds.

We are hard at work with little word on what is going on, mostly due to the planning for, and then the actual arrival of Babysaurus The Second in June. I type now with the six week old darling girl sleeping on my chest, a feeling I hope to never forget, and her older sister nearby telling me all about her stuffed dog. She does love the dogs.

We were late getting things in the spring. Direct seeded peas, lettuce, chard, kale, beans, squash, cukes, tomatoes, peppers and an eggplant. The peppers are barley making it, the eggplant never coming up. Now that the peas are past we have planted more beans. The zucchini had a nasty bout with the vine borers again, and doesn't seem to be fruiting anymore sadly. We are awash in cucumbers and yellow squash, and tiny patty pans are joining in as well.

Loving the bounty of summer.
