Visits from Miss Potter and Mr. Grahame
Into the garden, here is Adam's new raised bed!
As you can see below, he's generally kept the various shorter beds in the garden in line with each other, so now that the greenhouse is removed, he can extend them and make them into longer beds -- all raised like this first one. All were made with compost last spring.
We didn't tell Ned.
They stayed quite still while I pulled aside the collard leaves and zoomed in.
So you see, Beatrix Potter visited in the form of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. And Kenneth Grahame visited in the form of Mr. Toad (err, Mr. Frog?) I would write of Rabbit and Mole, but I fear Mole has already been despicably treated by Ned the Black Labrador who dug up a large area under the pecan trees excavating for Mole's extended family. And Ratty is this very minute planning how to infiltrate the chicken coop this evening via his many tunnels and holes there.
Speaking of chickens, I picked some wild strawberries for them. They gobbled them up.
