Needless to say, the garden itself is not taking a break but working day and night. The bookseller sleeps at night, even when the farmer is working through the dark to harvest his crop right outside the window, but other than that I'm not taking a break, either. It's the blog that wanted to take the day off from books and from Northport to show you how our home garden is doing, both the crops in the bales and those on the ground. The camera had to peek under the leaves to see the baby cucumbers, burgeoning squash and bouquets of ripening bush beans. I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking today. Oh, but if you haven't checked out the current issue of Edible Grande Traverse, don't miss my review of Gene Logsdon's The Contrary Farmer. Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? Mine grows like wildfire!
