Controlled Chaos.....Or Is It Just Chaos?

Things are just crazy here at the garden. There was so much to do when I got home that I pretty much just threw my stuff in the house and headed directly outdoors.

As you can see, I'm not exaggerating. There was two weeks of mail to deal with.

And there was a flurry of making jam and labeling jars for the Farmer's Market, so the kitchen was a mess too.

There seemed to have been an explosion in the garden while I was gone... look how tall the potatoes got!

Here's some potatoes planted in an old wheelbarrow...


Peas in the Pea Tunnel!

Carrots bursting out from under their cover!

And Garlic Scapes galore!

I'm blessed with work.

Hello, Kitty!
