Well, the day began with rain and now is ending with it. It’s maddening! I did check the extended forecast, though, and it looks promising: rain tomorrow but then dry for most of next week. It’s a good thing because we have TONS of stuff in the greenhouse waiting to be planted outside once we’re able to do so. We also sowed a ton of seeds today with the hope that we’ll have a warmish and long fall. We got the potatoes for the weekend out of the ground this morning and then retired to the greenhouse to sow beets, chard, lettuce, kohlrabi, and Napa cabbage.
A few people have mentioned that they enjoy the blog but would like to see more photos. Amen to that! It’s just a matter of finding the time, folks. As we gear up for this weekend’s weeding party and potluck, I’d like to post a few pix of our wonderful volunteers this week. I didn’t get a picture of Heidi and Kate, but here’s Carney, fresh out of the mud in the potato beds:
Today, River Foss came by to help Kate and I with the sowing:
And, just for fun, I spied a rainbow over the greenhouse a few afternoons ago after one of those lovely thunderstorms we’ve been experiencing recently:
That’s it for now…hopefully, I’ll be able to take and post some photos this weekend!
Also, a friendly reminder for those of you CSAers who are following my random musings and updates here: This is a blog! The idea is a non-static, back-and-forth kinda thing, with posts, threads, and all sorts of other things. I’m not just fishing for random comments…Sonya and I would really like to know what you all think of your shares and what you’re up to. What did you make with your veggies this week? What worked out well and what didn’t? What veggies did you like and which ones could you live without? How are your home gardens going? Etc… We’ve love to hear from you, and I would guess that your fellow CSAers would, too! Let’s get some dialogue going!
