I can't believe how wonderful the weather has been lately...It couldn't be better if I ordered it myself! It's usually overcast or foggy in the morning, maybe it even rained a little at night, then it clears off about the time I open at 11:00. It's not overly hot, it's not too cool.......it's perfect! The flowers and vegetables and bees are just loving it. The plants are getting HUGE and are lush and happy. *SIGH* ...... happiness.
I weeded in the carrot bed again today.
Finished the whole bed right at closing time. The first planting had came up strong, but something ate alot of the seedlings, so I broadcasted some more seeds today. Two steps forward, one step back...that's what I always say.
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:
