i spend a couple of hours among the vegetable garden beds in the cool of the morning
there is not much planted, or growing, except weeds
this years potato beds are full and a tee-pee of green beans grows all alone in a one bed.
there is one squash plant and some cranberry beans, and a few empty beds.
i think back to years when this garden would feed the five of us
throughout the summer, and into fall and i wonder if when he retires,
and is home with me full time, if i will plant one again??
i like the freedom this year, of not having to worry about it,
not having to water or weed, but it is a trade off for sure.
i find one of the dogs toys buried among the weeds and ask him
if he is hoping for a bumper crop!
