I forgot several important facts in the new post below.
1. Rob found tadpoles in the path between the raised beds in the veggie garden, where the water is an inch or two deep.
2. The Unnameables is on Education.com's summer reading list for middle school kids, and in the June Hall of Fame at teensreadtoo. As reported on The Enchanted Inkpot, it's on the American Booksellers Association Spring/Summer 2009 Indie Next List for Reading Groups and, closer to home, the 2009 Cream of the Crop list compiled by the Southern Maine Library District. Sorry about all the links.
3. It's raining again.
