Summertime

Our garden looks barren compared to last year’s lush landscape. Four of the raised beds are empty. The carrots, onions, and garlic did poorly, and I pulled the cabbage and snap peas a few months ago. On the other hand, the tuscan kale and bush beans are thriving, and the newer dinosaur kale looks like it might survive.

I noticed a feral cat sniffing around one of the empty beds one morning, and little holes dug in the soil. Not a good sign — we probably should cover the unused beds with mesh/screen. With the baby, it is currently hard to carve out time to tend the beds, but I still try to do what I can in 15-minute spurts here and there…
