It's already been a long, hot and dry summer and it's only early July!! The garden survived our Alaska vacation. Many thanks to a few great friends and family who came out to tend it while we were gone. The tomatoes unfortunately developed and great deal of blight. I've worked this week trimming and pulling the worst affected out. There are a lot of tomatoes on the vine, hopefully we'll still have a great harvest in a few weeks. The cherry tomatoes are coming in now. The melons are looking good as is the winter squash and sweet potatoes. If we can get a little more rain we should have a good late summer harvest.

If anyone has any suggestions or comments, please let me know. You can also email me at

Early Summer......

The high heat has really put an early end to a lot of the spring greens. The greens mix, spinach, turnips, arugula and some of the lettuces are beginning to bolt. But it also means we will have summer veggies early. The squash looks beautiful and has a lot of blossoms and tiny fruit. The potatoes are really good this spring...very smooth and buttery. The onions are so sweet and crying when you slice them!

The bee hives are coming back this week thanks to our beekeeper Jeff Friend! They have a lot of work to do. It's sad that the neighborhood bees have really dropped off in the last few years and we have to bring in extras to get everything pollinated.
