The other day a family hired me to conduct my regular rockhounding class. A good time was had by all.
When most people agate hunt on the beach, they usually look at the rows of rock at the high water mark. One of the class participants found a seam agate in the layer of rock exposed in the mini-bluff up the beach.
Here are a few photos of the garden beds after we finished weeding.
In the south bed we have tomatoes, peas, pumpkin, butternut squash, zucchini, pickling cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, parsley, celery, radishes, thyme, and dill.
The east bed is dedicated to tomatoes. We hope it is warm enough this summer for them to ripen.
The pole beans are coming up!
The tomatoes have some flowers starting...
The iris in my yard are in bloom...
...and the rose bushes are growing like crazy.
