Things are growing fast now. Today we had a meal of green beans and zucchini to go with the salad and potatoes out of the garden. From now until we leave for the winter we will be able to get the whole meal except for the four ounces of meat each, right from the garden. The new vegetable from the garden are so good, they taste so much better when you can cook them within an hour of picking them. We have already frozen bok choy , spinach. broccoli, and cauliflower. I don’t grow the broccoli myself but I do trade raspberries for fresh picked broccoli. I give her two quarts of raspberries for a shopping bag full to over flowing of broccoli. I now have 18 meals of frozen broccoli and four meal fresh and owe her six quarts of raspberries as soon as they are ready.
Joe and his father-in-law took the six raspberry roots I had potted and I will dig up some more roots for Joe when the berries are done producing. They are running about two weeks behind last year, we had such a cool spring and so much rain but the berries don’t mind, they are loaded and just waiting for the sun to ripen.
Today we switched to DSL so it will be easier to get my blog out each day. Before I had dial up and it took about twenty minutes just to get on line and ready to write. I never seemed to have the time to get it done. No excuses now, I got right on tonight. That also means I have a new email address – firstname.lastname@example.org I will try to drop each of you a note to give you the address also. Have a great day
