Hello all my fancy fellow farmers!
Next Saturday, August 12, is our big weeding day/potluck extravaganza, and you are all invited to join in! We start at 9am, and quit by 4pm. Darrel is planning to bbq for lunch, so bring whatever sounds yummy to add to the grill. Some of his band mates may be hanging out, too – so we may get to listen to a guitar lick or two!
The garden looks like a jungle, and I picked the first beautiful tasty, dark chocolate mini-tomatoes this morning as I pulled weeds the size of small trees! They were delicious.
Harvest: there may be beans by next weekend – not sure yet. We have dill, parsley, cilantro, carrots, beets, some lettuce, peppers, and eggplant, and basil. There may be some cucumbers poking around. Perhaps a tomato or two will ripen due to this crazy hot weather. It’s just beautiful, but needs some taming!
After our weeding party, I will keep you posted as things ripen. Next month should be big for tomatoes & squash, and the corn patch looks great! Apples and pears ripen late, late – in early fall.
Bees are buzzing – we had to cover them with a canopy it was so hot!! The girls are working hard to keep their hives cool enough! It’s fun to watch them drink water – and they drink a lot!
Take care all,
Hope to see you Saturday.
