Rolling into June
We did it. Got through May. I got through the two wedding weekend smoother than imagined. Another wedding coming up this weekend that should be very nice. We have a big order of woody cut liners here from Spring Meadows waiting for some love. A big order of perennials for cutting from North Creek (wow, what an awesome company). Get me out of this annual cut rat race! We have no idea where we are putting them.....(should I have admitted that?)...but sometimes it's all about the dive in with farming. Also this year, peonies and blueberries. I know, they have been on the list for years, but this is their time! Our time! Any time we have before second baby! AAAGGGHHH!
Our produce is really starting to roll in with lots of delicious eating and amazement at what comes out of such a small space. With a hell of a lot of effort and love. It is time to start putting some food up---this is the week for strawberry jam (did I mention on the blog this is our worst berry season ever with all the rain? Horrible, horrible. Peak week we picked a measly 10-15 flats. Disgusting. Next year we are cutting back by half.) And also the beginning of cucumber pickling. Beet pickling. And I'm so ready to eat that first tomato. Patience, patience!
