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.

The potato plants were showing signs of disease. Since they are in the same plant family and share diseases with tomatoes, I decided to take them out now. So, with a late planting due to weather and an early harvest due to an abundance of caution, I have a small, but beautiful harvest of golden potatoes with pink eyes. 16 pounds, and now an open spot in the garden for more planting!
