A couple of days ago Rich and Suzanne left town and turned the boat back over to us....so that means we need to go back to work!
The day started out sunny and beautiful and stayed that way for quite a while. It made loading the pickup very enjoyable. The good news is that everything is out of the house!! YEAH!!!! Then we went to the store to buy groceries. 4 cart loads later we headed out the door of the grocery store and discovered it was dark and raining....like it was October or something! The bad news is that we had the pickup without a canopy and by the time we got the groceries down to the boat they got very wet!
We worked late into the evening to get everything put away and then....grabbed a quick bite to eat at McDonalds.....the irony of it all!
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:
P O Box 6021
