This summer’s gardening goals were quickly reevaluated and I’ve had small successes.
We have happy bees.
Happy bees are good bees. If you want to learn more about happy bees, I highly recommend 100 Plants to Save the Bees: The Best Blooms to Nourish and Sustain Native Bees, Honey Bees, and Other Pollinators published by The Xerces Society.
We have tomatoes! I have two other plants of different varieties, but this one is pretty reliable in having a few ripe fruit every day.
Most importantly, we have cat grass. Every week or two i start a new batch so that Shadow and Buddy can have their greens whenever they want.
