Off Topic: How Our Garden Grows

After a couple decades of living in Brooklyn, NY, we moved to rural New Hampshire. We now live on a ridge in the foothills of the White Mountains. It's great fun to actually have a yard and a garden!

Above is a stitched together photo of our 3 raised beds. The photo was taken on June 3rd.

And here is a photo of all three beds. That's a pile of compost in front. This shot is also from June 3rd.

And, above, the same 3 boxes (again, stitched together photos) as of this week. What we are growing in those raised beds: tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce, turnips, escarole, radishes, beans, green peppers, eggplant, strawberries.

The bushy tomato plants are in the foreground.

Above is a closer shot of the bean trellis. A work of messy folk art if ever I saw one.

Obligatory photo of what the cats do while we are outside, working hard, weeding and watering. This is Sam, in the sun, sleeping on a fleece in the windowsill. His leg hanging off is in blatant defiance of the law of gravity.

Wow! That stuff looks great!

I can't keep a houseplant from the brown death for more than a week, so I'm impressed.
