Please excuse my temporary radio silence. We have been very busy working on the garden, which at the moment looks like we’re attempting to create a scaled replica of World War I trench warfare in our backyard:


Actually, we are laying down irrigation lines in preparation for making two raised beds in the side garden. But this makes almost six weeks we’ve been working very hard in the garden, and so far all we’ve done is make it look significantly uglier.

So tell me — at what point does that start producing this? (Taken at the Farmer’s Market last week.)
