Today was another beautiful but long day. After coordinating testing it was time to launch the boat...
ooohhh, I want that....
After the boat was securely tied in its stall in the harbor we headed to the grocery store. Grocery shopping for the first trip of the year is always a painful process. This year there are 3 trips booked back to back without coming back to Sitka so we needed a lot of stuff. I usually end up filling about 5 carts for the first trip, but earlier this Spring Mr. Adams and I made a Costco run to Juneau with the pickup so we were already fairly well stocked. This time we got by with only 3 carts!
And then it's home ... and there is no food in the house...sad but true. I sat in my chair like a zombie and the boys scrounged up some leftover cookie dough. Ron baked the cookies and they had warm cookies with ice cream and caramel sauce.
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.
To get a copy of my book, "How To Grow Vegetables In Sitka, Alaska" just give me a call....The books are $20 plus tax. If you live out of town and want me to mail you a copy, you can mail a check for $25.60 to:
