The garden -- planted

this year's garden

Here it is, this year's garden, planted in the canyon next to the barn. I've got sunflowers and corn, tomatoes and peppers, pumpkins, squash and watermelon, and some herbs and marigolds to help keep bad bugs at bay.

But -- and it's a big one -- there are challenges. Like the earth itself. See? You can make pottery out of it:pot

And then there are my neighbors, the gophers:Young gopher at the barn

Still, I do have help -- look, a ladybug!ladybug

And the memory of last year's garden, which offered up lots of bouquets like this, and nature girl moments like this:Butterfly in Malibu Definitely worth the dirt and digging and non-stop gopher mockery.
