Father’s Day was child-free. Alex and Nick are doing summer school courses, but they called to send their love. Absence, and the greens needing to be picked, made our hearts grow fonder. Bryon and Buster looked over the corn I planted last week. Birds had eaten some of the seeds as soon as they had begun to sprout. Our first peaches have ripened. They are sweet and have a floral scent. We covered the tree with a net to protect the fruit. We need to get more nets to protect our nectarines. The collard green plant reminds me of Audrey II … Spinach. It’s growing more slowly than expected, probably because of the heat.
It was all that Bryon could fit into the cooler.
