The best bagel is toasted just right sliced in half, topped with cream cheese, a slice of onion, and a slice of tomato. And if at all possible, a nice piece of lox. Yum!

Garden Update 6/15/18

Garden Update 6/15/18

I have taken these pictures over the last week. The garden which is the entire front yard (fenced in) and then the garden annex is the upper driveway.

I have about 175 or so plants right now and things are blooming. I use a drip irrigation on 95% of it, the rest will be set up tomorrow, and supplement with grey water from showers and laundry. The extra water really makes a difference. Here are some pictures. 🙂
