Thankyou Sitka!

It was a fabulous first day! My Gloxinia is blooming and the ducks are laying eggs.....

The rain wasn't terrible and the customers trickled in all day. This is Anna from Hawaii....she was bicycling by lost and stopped to ask me directions. When she realized this was a u-pick garden she decided to pick some greens......what a fun chance meeting!

2 new female ducks joined the herd today.....they needed a new home and I was happy to take them. One of them has really lightly colored plumage.

They seem happy to be here.....

The vegetables are looking spectacular and they taste delicious!

 Look at the size of this rhubarb stalk!

And Willow ordered the first garden basket of the season!

 Thanks! everybody!
