Summer is in full swing in eastern Washington, as you can see by the garden pics. Had potatoes and onions for lunch yesterday..... just minutes after we harvested them!
|Sweet corn looking good!|
|Birdhouse gourd hillls continue to spread like crazy... little gourds are starting to form.|
|Sunsflowers in the back, leaning to the east, facing the morning sun. |
Zukes in front, mulched with big sheets of cardboard. Not real attractive, but works!
|Found our first tomatoes in the midst of overwhelming foliage! |
I am brutally breaking off the suckers.
|First potato harvest... yukon gold, reds, and russets. Tasty!|
And use fresh-picked strawberries and raspberries for first jam of the season....
|Crushed fruit, lids simmering, and LOTS of sugar!|
|Four pints - YUMMY!!!|
The pectin box had a recipe for jalepeno jelly... think I might get peppers at the farmers' market next week and give it a try!
