An Early Summer Stroll of the Grounds

Late June and early July in 2021 . . .

A view of the house from Combs Street.

Even on a cloudy day, the Johnny Appleseed tree looks beautiful.  It grows stronger by the day.

Just one month later and the garden is going strong!

Corn, tomatoes and a lone marigold in garden at D.D. Collins House July 2021

The corn is looking great and the tomatoes are looking strong.  Looks like a bumper crop in the near future.  

Can you see what appears to be a lone marigold?

Take a peek over the fence for a west view towards the house of a healthy garden. They would have been proud of this garden in the mid-1800s and anticipated a bountiful fall harvest.
