Or Maybe It's Just a Fiery Burst of Beautiful Color—But Definitely a Celebration Nonetheless
Here's hoping you had a glorious Fourth of July!
Did you do anything in the garden over the holiday weekend? Or, more importantly, did you eat anything from the garden? I harvested the garlic (and about 40 pounds of weeds) earlier today, tried to make it rain by continuing to water the garden as a few drops started to fall (didn't work), and then enjoyed a fabulous dinner of grilled pork ribs smothered in homemade bbq sauce (from the locally raised hog we had butchered last year) with a side of freshly dug new red potatoes that were simply boiled up and tossed with lots of salt and butter. Insanely good.

Hooray for edible gardens—and being done with haying!
