|Herb bed, aka "Bed #1"|
In the herb bed there's this volunteer cantaloupe.
That means that it's a cantaloupe
left over from last year's garden.
It just showed up without being asked.
Like a volunteer.
So. There's this week's philosophy lesson.
Bed #2 features asparagus (at the top)
and cowpeas/purple hull peas.
I am excited about one of these crops.
Bed #3 has eggplant (the prominent plant) and

Mama's Tomatoes (aka "Better Boy"),
3 rows of carrots,

|Being a farm-girl is a lot of hard work.|
Pop helps get the hair fixed again!

Rosemary had a ball chasing her shadow!
|And she loved running back up again, too!|

He's sort of a legend.
At least that's what I've heard.
