The rain has really been pouring, but the work must go on....
I've been making Oregon Blackberry Jam and it's SO delicious!
As as a consequence, this mess never seems to go away!
One section of the carrot bed was in partial shade this year and so those carrots are running a little small, so today I pulled them all to sell them at the farmer's market this weekend. Everyone LOVES baby carrots!
I also harvested 2 more potato tubs....look at the size of this beautiful potato!
Harvesting potatoes is SO much fun...I am definitely going to have to plant more next year. Planting them in tubs sure makes harvesting easier.
I really got soaked outside, so not I am inside for the day...cleaning carrots and eating blackberry jam with toast underneath it!
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.
