One of the the many perks of living with my folks is that I have a great yard. Normally my mum and dad kind of hog the yard-work. Tending garden is mum's top favorite thing to do in the summer, and my dad is a lawn-care perfectionist. But they've been away on vacation lots this month, so I've been getting in lots of quality time with the garden. It's heaps of work, but when July rolls around it starts looking (and tasting) pretty spectacular.
