My son’s girlfriend joined us in Vermont for 2 months this summer. My wife and I enjoyed the good company of Katie and our son, and Katie’s talent as a gardener. Tending the vegetable garden (and eating great veggies) became the cornerstone activity of a memorable quarantine summer for all of us.” Devin Paden’s Garden shed art with beans and tomatoes in the background.
