I've never been so grateful for the long Texas summers as I am now. My late summer garden has finally been planted, and the promise of plentiful long, hot days ahead has given me hope for a few fresh veggies come fall. Hope, mind you, not expectation. This is the first garden I've ever grown and I'm expecting many bumps and set backs along the way as I learn what works and what doesn't in our soil, climate, and environment.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of cucumbers, bush beans, and peppers on the table. And the spinach which goes in come August. And the scallions which seem a little shy. And, of course, I'm dreaming of years to come, when my garden will grow and harvests will be bountiful. But for now, I'm happy to have my hands in a little square of dirt.

Dig, plant, pluck, harvest, repeat.
