While I was gardening

The art of gardening and the science of life.

The highs and lows of last summer.

Last summer was one of our worst seasons for food production – as in, almost nothing produced!  Some good tomatoes, great lettuce, but most all other crops failed.  I attribute this to the unpredictable and erratic  temperature swings.  But on a positive note, some ornamental plants bloomed better than ever before.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures:
