The corn is as high . . ., originally uploaded by RLHyde.

Kathleen and I have planted our first garden together, and this is the first time that I've done any kind of gardening in more than a decade! Crazy. I'm having a lot of fun with it, though. This year we've planted corn (pictured above), tomatoes (flowers below), an onion patch (below), hot peppers, cantaloupe, zucchini, summer squash (none of which are pictured here), and we're trying to get some spinach and swiss chard to come up, but the spring was so wet that we didn't put the seeds in until two weeks ago, so we may have to do a late summer planting and try for a fall crop of that stuff.

Anyway, I'm delighted by our progress so far!

Oh, and Scout is our supervisor while we're gardening. She does a marvelous job at it . . . also, she eats a lot of grass.
