Lots of tomatoes are starting to ripen. So much that I was able to make a batch of chunky gazpacho using various heirloom tomatoes. Peppers are following close behind and the golden watermelon plants and cucumber plants are all starting to flower. Cabbages and cauliflower plants were all eaten by something so I'll try again for a fall crop.

Was able to go back to OKC for a visit this weekend. As short as a visit as it was, it feels and looks like we were gone for longer than three days.
In three days, the Brussels sprouts were decimated by something. The cabbages too. The pigs managed to push the fencing up in sections and the chickens invited themselves in and helped themselves to some hog chow. The backyard looks like an Amazonian jungle. The dogs have shed all over my living room rug. The weeds in my garden have increased exponentially.
I'm not going to go anywhere again for a long time.
