I use the term liftoff loosely but proudly. In other words, vegetables – corn and tomatoes - are sprouting from the ground.
Last year at this time, the garden I planted (including Cantonese bok choy) had been nibbled at by squirrels and overrun by a bunch of weeds that ruled the land long before my family and I arrived.
This year, though, we picked a better spot – one that receives more sun. Actually, my wife suggested the plot of land.
We pulled the weeds, mixed in organic soil and planted the seeds. We watered and watched. We’ve stood next to the garden and tossed tennis balls back and forth.
As I type this, the squirrels have not invaded.
