The garlic scapes are ready, and we harvested all of them yesterday. This is a bit complicated, as they now need to be processed into pesto…while simultaneously picking up kids, taking them swimming, preparing for a camping trip, watering the garden, and on and on…missed a scheduled swim yesterday due to over scheduling and realized I’d double booked Sunday. Camping. While I know I will enjoy, nay…require the down time, simply getting out the door is a large job.
Other news here: The corn is loving the hot weather we’re having. Unfortunately a small rabbit is loving the corn. There may just be a need to get my Elmer J. Fudd on 😉 Ripped out the peas, since the weather got hot and they were winding down anyhow. Fall flats are coming in nicely. Pulled out a couple ‘cheater’ garlics and they are tasting really yummy. Black raspberries should be the mother load this year…which will make up for the crappy showing the reds are offering. Black currants are nearing their time too 🙂 So much to do…thankfully the days are nice and long.
May your weekend be filled with delicious food, excellent company and lots of sunshine.
