Catch of the Day

Meg and I did all of our gardening before breakfast this morning. It was nice. The long grass was heavy with dew and in the shade it was still chilly. The sun was warm and the coffee was hot. We watered the seeded beds, pulled a few weeds, and talked about how kick ass our garden will be at Future House. I just submitted my materials for a tenure-track position. I hope I get it. If so, Future House may happen by next summer. Our fingers are crossed.

The garden is finally starting to flex its muscles. It sounds like there are other folks out there who have also had slow gardens this year. Today we hauled in a pretty little fifteen pound produce section. Hopefully it becomes a trend.

Your haul looks awesome. Good luck on the position and on the potential Future House!

excellent harvest and I love that basket. I need a basket. I always harvest into a colander or a giant stainless pickling bowl.

Good luck with the teaching position...I'll keep all relevant appendages crossed for you!

Nice veggies! Looks like salad tonight!

Congratulations! I'm a bit green with envy. I wish I could master getting more than a bit of veggies from my garden. Our summer heat just nailed my garden this year.

Your vegies look awesome along with the sauce. I'm glad the 'mushing machine' worked well.

Good luck with the tenured position - you'll do great.
