In other garden news, our new puppy seems to find tomatoes absolutely delicious...I take her out with me to harvest and she heads straight for the tomato 'aisles', picks a ripe on and plops down, proceeding to enjoy her snack. Another tasty favorite of hers is carrots- which she will only eat out of my gardening clogs...why? I have no clue. But as I seem to have a knack for finding the oddest animals with the weirdest personalities, we are just going to take it for what it is, and hope she doesn't make herself sick!
This weekend, I am off to pick raspberries. Mostly for making preserves (a tried and tested favorite in this house)- not from my garden, but from Rainbows End Farm , one of the best local growers I know. One of the things I find important is to support local growers and sustainable farming, and here, they practice both! Plus the berries are AMAZING!! They have a nice selection of greens, mums, and corn for making popcorn -so please check them out if you are ever in the area.
|Yummy! Fresh beans from the garden are my fave!|
|Again, no explanation for my luck growing tomatoes like this|
|Molly..sans carrot or tomato, but this is the "do i have to go inside?" face. priceless.|
|Seriously? Where am I going to put all this stuff?|
|P.S. found these little buggers in my strawberry patch. WTH? thought|
strawberry season was over 2 months ago!!
