This has been an amazing year for the garden. Everything is early and happening all at once.
The carrots are amazing!
There has been an abundance of Garlic Scapes and Garlic Greens. I made pesto for days!
And now the Garlic bulbs have been harvested and are for sale. This bulb was HUGE!!!!!
The Kohlrabi and Zucchini are the best I've ever grown.
And the Tayberries are absolutely amazing me!
In the middle of all of this, I had a water main replaced......
.....been making up Garden Baskets and boxes for customers......
......and have been trying to harvest and can as much juice and jam as time allows.
Obviously, blogging has taken a back seat to all the work. There simply isn't enough time to do everything AND document it. Maybe I'll do more when things slow down........
Come on out to the garden before everything is gone!
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.
