Today is a checking in with the gardens I see around me. So many. I don't have a garden this year because I couldn't deal with the deer problem at this time. Next year this place will have a big garden, I am sure.
SO, here and there, gardens, gardens. Yesterday I had my first annual bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, with lots of mayo, and the tomato was from nearby neighbors. (See first photo) Thanks, Tammy! I have written poems about BLTs; I don't eat much bacon the rest of the year.
We went to visit Sandy and Junie's chickens and rabbits, and I took a few photos of their hilltop garden, with three sessions of corn - newly planted, stalks in waiting, and almost ready ears on the tallest rows. Good luck distracting the raccoons!
|This photo was made earlier in the visit, with my shadow for fun. This also shows what a difference light makes when a photo is taken!|
|Here's a garden where horses used to graze. This home's garden used to be across the road, the one we take to drive to town.|
Then there is George and Margie's garden. I have shared photos from here other years. I caught this in the morning, when the light was good, and I don't think they were home. But they have given me permission to take photos any time I can. I rarely get going early enough to catch them actually working in their magnificant garden.
|again corn, for now and for later|
|tomatoes, beets and beans|
|Turning my back on the garden, I took a photo of fields next door, so to speak, newly mowed.|
