    How was the garden in 2013, Kate?

    Wow - thanks!!!!! :) This totally made my day.

    Red Hill ~ This is only a teeny part of the garden. The soil was so good between the deck and the fence that I did not want to let it go to waste. It's only tomatoes there and I can access from each end - not ideal but it works! :)

    That looks like an awkward garden to get at. How's your garden doing this year! You're in my neck of the woods. It's been hard to keep the gardens watered. I wish we would get a little more rain. I guess I should be careful what I wish for. : )
