Hopes for an early summer harvest

With plans for a trip to Peru this summer, Austin and I have our fingers crossed for an early summer harvest. So far, so good.

We have a few pests to tackle (or endure) — mostly pillbugs, slugs and spider mites. But other than that, our garden is thriving. Sunflowers are popping up everywhere; some are volunteers from sunflowers we had last year, and some are from seeds I planted that were moved around by the recent rains. The best laid schemes of mice and men, eh?

I took some pictures of my discoveries on my evening exploration and found a whole lot of cool things to share… including a snake! These days the garden changes daily. It’s quite an incredible transformation from the generic suburban backyard we had before.
