What Have We Been Doing?


Blogging takes a back seat when summer is full on.  Yesterday I finally got around to taking some pictures of what the gardens look like these days.  May drought led into a June deluge, followed by an early July heat wave (and then last night it was in the 40s!).  Summer in Vermont.  Our days have been filled with pulling weeds, mulching, and planting.  CSA shares have been filled with a good variety of early season veggies and have been well received.  Slugs continue to be one of our greatest challenges, the ducks help with that but they can’t be everywhere we want them to be.  The freedom ranger chicks are about half way to harvest and starting to get sassy!  Lately we’ve been spending a lot of time tucking all those fall greens, brassicas, and successions of beans and herbs in.  We’ve also had some help from WWOOFers, which was great!  And now- berry season is here.  Currently red and black raspberries, red, white and black currants and several kinds of peas all need to be picked.  So that is  some of what we’ve been up to.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

    I recognize so many of your plants I have in my garden too, including the red amaranth. Must be very similar weather. Aren’t those black raspberries something! This is the first year we have had a decent harvest, and so making the most of them.
