In other news, our niece Emma is visiting and has been an awesome help in everything from building bee boxes with me to digging potatoes, as evidenced in the last photos. We were picking tomatoes today and made a welcome discovery of lacewing eggs laid on a particularly lucky tom tom. It's not a bad spot to lay those eggs, as the tomatoes do have aphids for the larvae to eat when they hatch, but I'm glad I spotted them and was able to deposit the tomato back into the garden. It has been so lovely to have Emma here, and be able to garden, cook and generally hang with her.
Summer is flying by...all the more reason to savor those sun filled summer evenings, right before the sun sets, which I plan to do each evening I can from now 'til fall!
