Starting the Garden
Steve mentioned he and Lib are getting the garden started. Here several thousand feet lower in elevation and so many degrees lower in latitude, we've already started.
We've got a small garden, just two plots, too-full with tomatoes, banana peppers and basil---the three edibles we four can agree on and eat often. This year I've got a new pet, a patio tomato in a single pot. It's awful cute, but I don't know if it's going to do as well as the Better Boys.
This is about one month's worth of growth in Louisiana. By June the 'maters might be higher than the poles.
The pen in the back is the hawk's weathering yard, which serves as a vine scaffold in the summer.
