My garden is in an area at about 7200 feet in elevation. The food growing season is only about four to five months, depending on how long winter lasts. Here’s some of the action out of my backyard garden so far this year. The bird is an immature Say’s Phoebe, the flowers are echinacea that the bird is perched on, in the background are marigolds, and lobelias. The food stuff are snap peas, basil, garlic, summer squash, cherry tomatoes, and Spanish lavender.
