After coordinating testing today I grabbed Levi and we took lunch out to the boys and stayed to help them paint the bottom of the boat. The weather was absolutely beautiful today, in fact I can't remember the last time we've had such nice weather during a haulout. Usually it's raining and snowing and blowing sideways so it was a real blessing.
We got done early, so I had time this evening to work on my fencing project. It is going slow because I am still designing it. Hopefully I will get it figured out soon because it is almost time to transplant! My little seedlings are starting to get tall and straggly. This always happens to me because I have a tiny sunroom and I use shelves. Each shelf shades the one underneath it and even though I flip the trays around once in a while they still get tall and eventually I give up. It will be okay though because the seedlings can be planted up to their necks and they will grow straight once they are outside.
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.
