Cruising!

Just back from out vacation and 25th anniversary cruise, along the New England coast and the Canadian Maritimes.  It was a great cruise, during which time the heavens opened and rain poured out on my garden and lawn.  Which, of course, would be fine, except that because of the dry spell in May, June, and early July I had gotten an electronic water timer and hooked up various hoses and sprinklers to water things while I was gone, so every four days, in addition to all the rain, I watered most everything.  I came back to a near jungle, but that’s better than coming back to a desert.  Anyway, I was having much fun, seeing things like this:

My water bill is high, but I am keeping the vegetable garden growing. No tomatoes yet, though!

And the corn, as they say, is knee high by the 4th of July!
