Well the weeding season is upon us. I went out this morning and took care of a few unwanted visitors. Plants look well. A bit smaller garden this year, but I think we will still have quite a harvest. I told Tony today that I think it should be one of our life goals to eventually grow most of what we eat through the year. Last year we planted 8 potato plants and they lasted until December. We would only need to double that to get almost a years worth. Here are some pictures of my garden status.
This is my flower pot on the deck. I used an old silver wash tub and the brilliant blue and orange look wonderful in it.
I can get another picking of rhubarb in. I’m thinking maybe some rhubarb sauce since I don’t need to make any more jam. (I didn’t have to make any jam this year–I still have a ton from last year.)
Herbs are growing very well. This is sage and a bunch of basil and oregano.
Peas and beans are coming along nicely. We had to do a double fence around these this year so the bunnies don’t get any free meals.
And finally the lovely potato plants. Variety=Kennebec=good for lefse=a proud Norwegian.
