After Burn Day

This is the remains of our burn pile 24 hours later. The partly consumed limbs and tree trunks will serve as the bottom layer for our fall event.

The perennial grass garden arises from its spring burn. These plants will soon be 6 to 8 feet tall and will create a spectacular tableau of varying colors and textures..

These are a stand of our everbearing raspberry plants. They will produce a continuous crop of red and yellow berries all the way through the first frost in October. They are very sweet.

Marcia is planting some lettuce seeds. The early warm weather of the past few summers has created difficult growing conditions for this crop, but one of the joys of gardening is eternal optimism.
