Farmer Dave


That's Farmer Dave, above, tucking broccoli babies into his garden. I guess we're putting down roots at our rental house, because this year he dug up a HUGE garden plot, started oodles of seedlings downstairs (that's his grow operation, left), and is well on his way to planting enough produce to feed our neighborhood.

Those are apple trees behind him, which our neighbor has been pruning back into shape. Julia has high hopes for making apple sauce and apple butter and apple cobblers this fall.
