It was a weird year for gardening here at Crabb Hollow. With Mary Ann in the hospital for most of May and June and me commuting to Carmichael every other day, there wasn’t much time for tending the veggies. Even so, I bought a few tomatoes, stuck them in the ground, covered them in chicken shit, and tried to remember to water them at least twice a week. All in all, it turned out pretty good.
Today was Mary Ann’s first venture into the jungle that is our backyard since her surgery. These Morning Glories are volunteers from last year’s crop. Same with the Acorn Squash…
This is why the nuns used to rap my knuckles with a yardstick.
I would like to thank all the folks who bought my shirts, books and other goodies and the folks who just stopped by to say hi at this year’s Summer Nights in Nevada City. It was a typical full moon atmosphere, capped off last night by a spectacular light show of falling space debris. Love ya, NC!
