What a special time of year for people who love veggies. We are in the prime season for gathering in all the fresh vegetables from our garden. This is the time of the year when we get paid back for all that hard labor in planting and nurturing those lovely plants.
|And are we ever reaping the rewards this year!|
Gardener Ted has had the best crop of cantaloupe/muskmelon he's ever had.
This beauty is 9 3/4 pounds!
The garden is producing lots of peppers and cucumbers.
We're staying ahead of the zucchini, but how many zucchini cakes can one eat?
|Garden entrance here in center of photo. We finally nixed the rabbit problem|
with chicken wire buried 6 inches deep around the entire garden.
|GT had a hip replacement in February. |
The garden is good therapy to get that hip moving and make it strong.

Summer is winding down, but it's not too late for a delightful beach read from British author Helena Fairfax. She'll take her seat in the Readers Circle sharing her delightful book, Felicity at the Cross Hotel on Friday, August 25. Please join us. We may even have a spot of tea with her!
