Garden news...

Molly eyeballs Rocky Raccoon on top of the "Garden Ladder to Nowhere"
Fortunately, the garden is surviving with little precipitation, although we may get some today based on the look of the sky. We could definitely use some, but at the same time, if it does come, I pray it comes in the form of water and not hail, like last year!
We have harvested quite a bit of lettuce and radishes to date making for some tasty salads, but I really can't wait for the corn and the zucchini's!


  1. Hey R Dean,

    I'm glad you stopped by my blog, even if it's in its semi-dormant state right now.

    Your garden looks great! Not bad for a city slicker! :) When did you abandon the city life?

    I love your crew. They look like a happy bunch.


  2. Faith, thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it! No problem, dormant is not bad! You have a ton of interesting things on your blog, so you will keep your readers satisfied for weeks to come even if you can't post updates every day! :-)

    Thanks for the compliment on the garden! We abandoned the city almost two years ago and have never regretted it. We have a nice little modest 4 acre parcel that we have lots of plans for. So far, we have grown a bunch of "stuff" and plan to introduce chickens and ducks next Spring.

    So that said, we will really have a crew then!

    R Dean

  3. You're garden looks great!

    Did you get any rain yesterday?

  4. Thanks Tracey! Actually, yes, got a little bit last night and a little bit more today! Continue to pray to the rain God! :-)

    How about you guys? How is the garden coming along? How bout those 'maters?
