Newest Garden Photos

Since these were taken last weekend there has been significant growth in the garden. Daily I am watching plants reaching for the sky.

The weather has been absolutely perfect with warm sunny days and rain about every third day or, so. Not enough to flood everything and cause damage... but, enough for the needs of the plants.

The radishes are from a second planting. The first planting did poorly and I was told even though we were into our hot weather with the second planting, to plant the seed one inch deep instead of the 1/4 inch they are usually planted. Well the old gardeners were right. This crop has been prolific and sweet as can be. Not bitter at all.

And, the black raspberries.... I am freezing all I can for eating during the winter months. That is if they can make it to the fridge before I eat them out of hand or, in some yogurt. Yum, yum.

I love the new template, Cita. And the berries, too. I got a cherry pitter and made a crisp the other day. Didn’t last long and was scrumptious; Iris waited one day too long and missed it; she’s bumming. Cherry season is over for my area-others will come but next year I am going U-Pick-ing. It’s an hour away but how fun.

Love you lots.

Crisp sounds oh so good. Looks like once again the birds have gotten our cherries. Dang it all!

Little old me...
