Head High on the Fourth of July!

Our community garden plot is growing according to plan; mostly it takes care of itself.  Here's hoping the rest of the summer proceeds with fairly normal weather so that we might harvest great gobs of corn, squash, and potatoes to put up for the winter.

I love America, a place where there's still room to sow seeds of change, where one can nurture gardens and hopes.  Happy Independence Day!
