a garden is a good thing

This is the second year for our squirrel proof garden. We have an over abundance of ground squirrels so the garden is lined with chicken wire even 2 feet below the surface. It has been a cooler than normal spring and summer for us in the Northwest. Our garden is liking everything about this year's weather. So far the garden has given us radishes, romaine, beets, carrots, green onions, basil, parsley, swiss chard, oregano, sage, rosemary and thyme. And the flowers... omg, they are off the scale this year. A garden is a very good thing.
