Today's inspection of the garden found buds forming on the zucchini, the start of the tasselly part of the corn peeking out of one knee-high stalk, and teeny tiny buds that will someday be jalapenos. Hooray! They like the soil! They really like the soil! Now if I can just keep them happy during the next week, when it's supposed to be sunny and dry the whole time, we should be well on our way to having homegrown veggies for the chipmonks to attack in a few weeks.

While we were able to eat most of our peaches, all of our plums and all of our grapes have been donations to the grackles and field mice.

How can I get a tax deduction for donations to wildlife conservation? I guess only if the grackles formed a non-profit organization.
