After some rain and blazing hot weather, we're back to coolness again. We put out about half the garden: all the tomatoes, peppers, and a couple rows of corn and should have the rest out this week. The onion thieves will suffer this year, though. When cleaning out some things, I ran across a note with the below lines written on it. I've found out it is an extraction of some lines from an essay by Wendell Berry. I don't have the book to double check the accuracy but I like it. I wonder if Mr. Berry's corn is up yet.
