Seems impossible that we are halfway through the year already. Time seems to be flying by. Gardens are started, but the plants seem slow this year. We've had some unavoidable life-delaying events that made us put things like gardening on the back burner, but we've gotten through and are moving on to the heights of summer now. Life is very different than it was only a year ago. Schedules have changed, we've lost friends and family members, jobs have changed, hobbies have lost focus... seems like everything is different, and yet, what matters most remains, and is stronger than ever.
