Back to Work

As I said, we've been back to work this week.  JP, J and I have been at our jobs, and L was at Basketball Camp.  It has been a super hot week - until things cooled off this weekend (we even had our windows open all day yesterday!)

The blueberries have been producing for the past couple of weeks.  I think that I picked about 7 1/2 gallons myself this week, and several friends and neighbors picked last week and this weekend as well.  I have frozen over 4 gallons of berries, dried about 1 1/2 gallons, made jam, blueberry muffins, blueberry cobbler, blueberry cheesecake and blueberry pancakes, and eaten them with my yogurt every day!  I think they are starting to finally slow down!

I managed to get 2 beds of corn planted before vacation, and it looks like it might be starting to come up!  I spent a couple of hours in the garden yesterday, just weeding the paths, and it is STARTING to look better.

My herb garden is looking good.

Clockwise from front:  Purple Basil, Oregano, Sweet Basil
Chives, Parsley, Thai Basil & Rosemary (center)

John built a shade structure for the chickens so that we could move the electric fencing for their yard.

As you can see, they completely denuded the ground behind the fencing.  They seem to be enjoying their access to greens!

That's about the extent of work at the farm in the past couple of weeks!  How does your garden grow?
