Plants, animals, and people living in Coastal North Carolina are influenced by large, shallow bodies of water, called "Sounds." The Sound's daily influence can be a challenge or a gift. The word "sound" also means "in good condition; not damaged, injured, or diseased." Sound Harvest and Garden will try to reflect both those meanings, as I aim for sound vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs, and ornamentals, all from my home by Core Sound.

Every year I forget the carrots, quietly hidden underground below feathery tops. Then, on a day like today, I notice them, and check, and find a few sweet beauties ready to eat. These were great! At about 6 inches long they are tender and sweet. You see the garlic growing in the background.
The other photo is my dock, usually 3 feet above the marsh, almost hidden by the tides that came with the edge of last week's hurricane. She stayed far out to sea as she passed our coast, and we lost only one small board from the dock.
