photo: basil & tomatoes

The heat and humidity are gone, but still no rain. The leaves are
still green, but brittle, like they’d crack in a strong wind.
I moved the fence which had contained our pumpkins to protect
our wildflowers from deer-grazing.

The tomatoes and basil like this sort of weather, though. The cherry
tomatoes we have came on their own from seeds they dropped last year.
I love to snack on them when I’m out in the yard – warm and sweet
as they pop in your mouth.
