Once were home, we watched the garden grow:
|The east garden.|
|Potatoes on the left. A closer look at the east garden.|
|Still growing!! These plants are HUGE!|
|The squash patch at the back of the east garden, a few weeks ago.|
|Same patch, growing fast!!|
|Eöl with the onion harvest. Yes, he's wearing mosquito gear.|
|Cleaning and processing onions to be dehydrated.|
|Dehydrated onions. Over five pounds of processed onions shrink to fit in a quart jar.|
We did some berry picking.
|Caught red handed!!|
|We picked well over a gallon of wild black raspberries. |
Then I saw cultivated raspberries were going for $10 a quart at the local market.
I'm berry rich!
|19 jars of black raspberry jam!!|
I'm proud of myself. I went right to work on the jam, rather than putting the berries in the freezer
until I "get around to it".
I worked in the flower beds.
We played with the adorable new farm kittens.
And that about brings us up to date. Oh, yeah, here's the current situation...flooding.
This afternoon, we had yet *another* big storm. This one uprooted a tree in our neighbor's yard and took the top off this maple by our driveway. Thankfully, it fell into the yard and not the driveway, so I didn't have to cut it up in the rain.
