Asha and Ajax help with digging. I've had several generations of Rhodesian Ridgebacks and thoroughly enjoyed every minute with these intelligent, affectionate dogs. Although they are very active and are excellent hikers and swimmers, they also enjoy the slower pace of gardening, and help to keep marauding critters at bay!
A moderate climate, with plenty of sunshine and rain makes my organic efforts all the easier. I make a point of harvesting something daily for each meal prepared (I especially enjoy making stir-fries). As a result, I find store-bought produce incredibly boring and rather tasteless!
