Precious The Cat doesn't go out in the garden anymore but she watches me from her perch on the blue chair when I go outside. The tomato plant in the raised bed is the happiest tomato I've ever seen. So many tomatoes this year! The ground cover Alyssum smells wonderful. This is the time for viewing beautiful spider webs in the backyard, marveling at the very tall native sunflower plants, and planting lettuce and spinach.
