We've had good times; we've had bad. When it comes to our garden harvest, the glass has been 3/4 full this summer. On the plus side, our tomatoes, lettuce, beans, cucumbers beets, chard, sunflowers and corn hit the jackpot, while the bugs and inattention brought our squash to an early death. I'll take the blame on this one. We have been eating the corn for a few weeks now. It's golden, sweet and delicious. Elenka's mom always had a garden in New Jersey, so when she calls throughout June, July and August these days, she always wants to track the the progress of our vegetables, especially the corn. A couple things that did not raise ugly heads this summer were Mr. and Mrs. Woodchuck and family. Musta headed up the road to the nearby roadside farm. I hope they plan to winter up there and stay next summer too. They are a royal pain in anyone's summer garden. If they head back, my hav-a-hart trap will be oiled, baited with lettuce and ready. Say hello to my little friend!
