'Tween Mother's Day and Father's Day

That's the time to plant anything. The danger of frost is past now and the soil is warming nicely. On Ebey Island, the water table has dropped a good six inches in the last week. This week I'll plant green beans and corn. The squash, pumpkins and cucumbers can go in also. This evening I walked about and saw that most of the potatoes are peeking above the soil.

There was a Killdeer made a nest back by my peas. She'd laid four speckled eggs in a little depression in the dirt where she'd placed some dry grass. Yesterday she chased me away from her nest. This evening I saw that both she and the eggs were gone. Some wild critter, no doubt.
