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.

Before leaving for an amazing two week trip, I carefully planted fall vegetables. When I arrived home, they looked like this: very nice considering they weren't watered for two weeks. With watering, they doubled in size in a week. Broccoli, cabbages, kale, all those amazing healthy greens of the new season.
So, why am I distraught? Jo, the smaller of my two dogs: you know, the one who loves vegetables? She ate the top out of every plant. Every. Single. One.
