Oats and Beans and Barley Grow

Oats and beans, not quite, but my housemate Brad and I have quite a diverse crop growing around MCXL this year. Two new ornamental plants in front are trying to survive and spruce up (literally!) the streetside view. So are brand new beds of wildflowers and, soon, sunflowers. The back yard should yield tomatoes, zucchini, raspberries, chives, spearmint, and maybe boysenberries. In the fall, we might try to harvest and roast the black walnuts, too.

On top of all that, we're raising organic, free-range woodchuck. Teriyaki woodchuck, anyone?

p.s. This post instantly became the #4 hit on Google for teriyaki woodchuck.

What about the Lilac? Is she OK?

Mmm, not sure. I'm pretty sure some of the branches won't make it, but the base might survive.
