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.

Foraging and harvesting
Here at the coast in July I am lucky enough to be able both to harvest from my gardens and to forage from local waters. Right now that means steamed blue crabs and seemingly unlimited cucumbers and tomatoes. Especially cucumbers.
