Thanks, all. It's been a very busy past couple of months. It started in Pennsylvania (work) then on to Manhattan (medical) then up to Maine (work), then to Wisconsin (work/family), immediately followed by a week on the road to and from Sweden.
The garden is looking great--among the best ever. A nice, rainy spring (from a gardner's perspective) with lots of intermittent sunshine have conspired to bring the plants gently into this world. We expect lots of fresh lettuce, broccoli, potatoes, beans, peppers, spinach, tomatoes, snow peas and God knows what all else we can coax from the soil before the frost sets in next fall. I will do a nice pictoral essay when it hits its peak in late July.
