The dwarf meyer lemon tree is doing better than ever and sporting several lemons.  I didn't even count them, there were so many!

Please note: I realize all of these photos have a smudge on them.  Unfortunately, I didn’t realize it until it was too late.  This is what happens when you let your kids use the camera!  I should also mention that some of the photos at the time of publishing appear to be the wrong way.  I’m working on it, and it may be that as you view it they will already be corrected… I’m not sure what is wrong on my end since all looks to be right.

Salad mix just picked from the garden and ready to take a spin in the salad spinner.

Momma robin has been sitting on the nest quite a bit.

Leaf lettuce right out of the garden is fresh and nutritious.

Peppery, bright arugula is one of my favorite things to grow.

Lots of garlic is doing really well in the garden bed adjacent to the garage.
