July 2012 Garden report

While I don't blog often these days,
it occurs to me that the blog makes a wonderful garden journal.
So an update on the garden...

While the rest of the nation experiences drought,
we've had good steady rain this year.
We've got some of the best looking corn in the country.

We've let the chicken's half
of the original garden
go to tall weeds this summer,
giving lots of shade
and shelter from hawks.
The two younger hens still lay
a steady supply of summer eggs.
Ethel is still perking along,
not moving as well as she used to,
but seeming to take pleasure in her old age.
