Why did the months of January, February, March and April feel like they lasted for 1723 days and June and July went by in 30 seconds??
.......Such are the summer months...
We have some exciting news from The Garden!! Tara, our volunteer garden manager shared some updates and these beautiful pictures ......
"We have 2 hives, our smallest one became queen less and diseased. It has finally started to snap back after supplemental feedings of a gallon of sugar syrup a week. Just expanded the hive!! The other hive is growing like crazy.
Tomatoes are in! We had 4 lbs today alone. Also still harvesting squash, zucchini, bell peppers, and now okra! Our eggplant just started fruiting, and we are loving our watermelon patch. There is a critter on the loose that has eaten our green beans and a bed of cucumbers. "
Tara reminds us that the garden teaches us.... "As always, a lesson in patience, renewal, and letting go."
We are soooo very thankful for Tara working the garden, Amy who communicates with the garden volunteers and all of our MANY wonderful volunteers who work faithfully on Saturdays to tend to this slice of heaven.
