This Week







This week, I:
1. Dug carrots.
2. Tied our garlic and got it ready to go to the basement.
3. Dug potatoes. They will accompany the garlic.
4. Harvested coriander seed, making sure I left plenty behind to reseed.
5. Put up a bushel of peaches. Ate a cobbler and will be eating peach ice cream!

It is 3:30 PM and 110 degrees in the shade. 110 degrees! Still no rain. The garden is mulched and we water, but that ain't cuttin' it. The ground is so hard that I can't stake the tomatoes. I haven't seen weather this brutal this early in the season ever.
Have a fun, safe 4th of July weekend~

This Week







It's been a busy week indeed. Summer is officially here!
1. The first blossoms from our morning glories welcomed us this morning.
2. Althea thinks that if she sits still long enough, birds will land to get a drink. City cats!
3. I cut lavender. Some of it will go into vials and make their way into my shop.
4. I made and listed some new jewelry. I love these giant sea urchins.
5. Some veggies from the spring garden, lined up and ready to make an appearance at the dinner table.
The heat is on. Now please, bring us some rain.

In Between Gardening


In between the gardening, when it's too hot to be out there any longer, when I'm not putting up food or when the rain begins, I head for the studio and bring the designs to life that sprouted while tending the plants. I love this time of year and am happy to once again be settling into this schedule.
