It’s the Fourth of July Weekend and it is hot out. It’s humid, sticky and still. Luckily there is reprieve to be found in our shaded backyard.
Of all the places to spend time in our home during summer, I choose the front porch. But when the front porch is too hot to bear, I move to the backyard and sit on the ledge of our raised bed garden. Our garden is at the point where all the plants are vibrant green and each day we can still find some new flower blooming. While we wait for the tomato and pepper plants to fruit, we’ve got plenty of lettuce and beans to pick and enjoy in the meantime.
