The gardens are doing great!! What else can I say? The snap peas are giving us a bumper crop this year! It's awesome and we are happy to be able to share the delicious harvest with you. The beans are a never ending picking party too...If we get done half the patch one day we can start again the next day and it just keeps going! (there is a dream to someday get a bean picker...but they usually ask us to sacrifice flavor for a 1 pick bean..and we aren't quite sure we want to give up on a good variety yet ). So for now...we keep picking beans almost every morning.
We are half way though the early summer season...and the baskets are starting to show a nice variety..only a few things that we are anxiously waiting for. The zucchinis and the broccoli have yet to show themselves. We have never had those crops so late...and other than a soil issue in the broccoli...we really don't know what is taking them so long. The zucchini are starting tho...and hopefully in the next week or two we will see them showing up in the baskets as well.
This week is BLUEBERRY week!! Uncle Dave from BC brings out a big truck load of blueberries fresh off the bush. They are delicious (and my blueberry cake is baking as we type this up!). We ordered lots and have extras to spare. If you would like a 10lb case of blueberries - visit the online line store to place your order. The local line store also has cherries and pickling cukes available. Orders are easy to place..use your credit card securely. and can be added to your weekly order.
Renewal reminder - if you only signed up for the early summer season...now is the time to get yourself registered for the rest of the summers' bounty by joining the late summer and fall seasons. Please register early so that you don't miss out on any of the delicious veggies that are growing in the gardens!
Our crew has grown by an extra pair of hands this week. We welcome Amy to the crew and are happy to have her helping along. The saying "many hands make light work" sure applies in our never-ending season of harvest!
