who likes to stare out my window at the garden in eager anticipation as if my garden is going to magically produce a great harvest right before my eyes?

Let's take a look at a few things in the June garden.
|The corn bed that suffered the most from critters, cutworms, birds, maybe both. Compare to the bed planted a few days later below.|
|The corn is growing much taller here. This is the bed directly behind the playset. There are squash and beans planted among all the beds of corn. There are 4 small beds.|

In March, my kids and I went tadpole hunting in the nature preserve and brought home a bucket full of them. We fed them cooked lettuce a couple of times, and kept them in clean pond or rain water and they all disappeared over time! They either all jumped out or they ate each other! Ha!
|There were a couple of others but I kept scaring them to the point that I no longer saw them hanging around. Maybe they just found a good hiding space! |
