Well… like I told you before, spring came and went. Poof… all gone now. The summer is decidedly here whether we like it or not. It is hot. More importantly, and somewhat disappointedly — it is humid. Poor little Sophia comes home from her walks all balmy and flushed.
While being outside is loosing its appeal due to the sheer stick-factor, gardening is quickly becoming one of my very favorite things to do. I really do enjoy puttering in the dirt especially since everything is coming in. Well, almost everything. Our shiso seems to have decided not to come up at all. Sigh. Our radishes, arugula, peas, basil and mesclun greens are coming in nicely. I am ashamed to admit that I have yet to plant tomatoes and at this rate, we’ll likely be enjoying them (if the deer don’t get to them) in November :-). Here’s what is going on in our neck of the woods.
