Summer

August 6, 2014

Oh hello.  The garden is currently on autopilot.  Between baseball, soccer and granola, home grown produce came in a distant 4th this year with a smaller lineup.  Nevertheless, the beds are producing, though more than a bit overgrown.  But I kind of like it wild.

We had a good bit of lettuce and spinach in June and part of July, and a bushel of peaches (thanks to WP Surround) from the tree.  Getting a steady stream of kale, jalapeños, raspberries, blackberries and herbs.  Lots of tomatoes, carrots and potatoes on the way, as well as a volunteer melon or two.  I picked our lone apple from the tree today rather than let the thieving bastard squirrels get it.  Yes, it will be sour – not unlike my disposition towards these loathsome rodents – but with a winning aftertaste.  Squirrels: I am a warlock with tiger blood and don’t you forget it!IMG_1885IMG_1887
