we’re moving from the cooler spring weather into the heat of summer. i just harvested the last of our kale, chard, and beets and i’m still trying to coax along some lettuce seedlings under the shade of our back porch. normally at this time, the beets from this bed would be replaced with the warmer weather crops like tomatoes or zucchini. instead we’ve yanked out the chicken wire (serving as a barrier for curious doggies) and put in bedding plants (which i don’t much care for) in order to make the yard pretty for a prospective buyer.
it’s the end of an era.
and while we’re on to bigger and better things, it still makes me feel a little sad.
