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.

My sugar snap peas are under attack from thousands of aphids. The aphids are under attack from lady beetles. I should move the good beetles aside and try some insecticidal soap on the aphids, but it is so much fun watching the drama work itself out that I have not been able to do so. Plus, the aphids are the only thing that finally stopped the little dog from chewing off the tops of the pea vines every day.
