Yesterday I spent the morning picking vegetable. I picked and froze three meals of peas. I picked all the fully grown beans I could find, I dug potatoes, and dug the rest of the garlic. I brushed the garlic to remove the loose dirt and then tied them up and hung them on the lower deck. I got 33 more large bulbs and 15 small bulbs and one garlic pearl. Now they have to hang there for two to three weeks and then I can braid them. Then just before supper I got some stawberries and we had strawberry sundaes for supper. Today I picked more beans and we canned 6 pints of green beans with pementos. It clouded in about noon and we got a good shower. I don’t know how much rain fell but It was enough to get the gardens wet. I dug more potatoes today. The plants that are dieing off I find are being attacked by grubs. They chew on the potatoes and attack the plant at the ground level. I will have to watch for them and get the potatoes before they do. After the shower it dried out quite fast and I got out to pick the strawberries again. I took all that were ripe and tonight we will have a short cake. The Star Gazers are in full bloom now so Norman took a picture of them for me. If I am lucky I will get it on this blog. Wish me luck! I made it! Aren’t they pretty. I bought four bulbs about
four years ago and now they have multiplied to this many. Behind them is my purple hydranga. Norman took a picture of that also so will put them all on here. The last two pictures are of our blueberries. I wanted you to see how full the bushes are and how big the berries are.
