I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!
There seems to be a dearth of bees around this year. It probably has something to do with the wet weather. They like this daisy though. Clear evidence that it is a great idea to plant flowers in with the veggies to lure the pollinators in. Mind you, these are in the front garden, so are not doing a very good job of advertising the pumpkins. in the back yard.
