The ducks have now started to give us eggs. Still not very large, but with huge yolks, perfect to use when baking. In the garden green things continue to grow. Everything is late this year, at least in my plots. The tomatoes are still green, and cucumbers are tiny. But I have harvested my first squash! Taking care of a garden is the perfect way to slow down. You can not speed up an eggplant, or bribe a runner been to grow tall.
