Ep. 1-18: Summer Garden Journal 5 | Live from My Backyard + August is Brutal

It feels like summer should be winding down but in all reality, especially here in Texas, we’ve got until the end of September before thinks start looking to cool off at all. It’s in the high 90s or 100s here with a lot of humidity, which combined puts the afternoons into a situation where gardening isn’t that appealing.

I sat down in my backyard during my lunch break to record this episode and touched on an update on the aspects of the garden as well as described where I was looking as I talked to y’all. Stay tuned for the end for a touch of the sounds I hear when all is quiet—and all isn’t really quiet is it?
