It was very windy today. We were scheduled to haul the boat out of the water this morning for yearly maintenance, but it was too windy. We rescheduled for tomorrow in hopes that the weather will improve.
I spent the morning catching up on paperwork at my desk, then headed to the boat to make up bunks and do some laundry. Here is a shot of our laundry room / crew quarters....
Looks snug doesn't it? After that I came home and looked into Lucy's sad eyes and felt guilty for neglecting her, so I took her for a bike ride. She is old and pretty much blind now but she still acts like a puppy.
I didn't do much in the garden today besides walk around outside to pick up things that had blown over in the wind and walk through the sunroom to admire the starts.
It was very exciting to see sunflowers poking up through the potting soil!!
It's going to be a great year!
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
