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.

After the strangest winter and spring ever, I finally have a substantial harvest from the garden. Lettuce, a giant pile of it, in many colors and textures! It tastes wonderful and it makes me happy. This small mountain is what was left after sharing with friends and neighbors. I even picked a few snap peas. Isn't it great to finally, finally have warm sunny weather and garden vegetables?
As usual, I am behind on planting. But, now that it finally is warm, I will be getting some beans and cucumbers in the soil. It has been a couple of dry weeks, so I have to wait for Friday's rain to moisten the beds. I am so ready for hot and humid!
