So, we had our first REALLY sunny weekend..86 degrees, Bow Wow!!
We have a "to do list" that should keep us going to Thanksgiving!!
We planted 109 tomatoes and 10 basil plants. We decided that the 325 tomato plants we did last year was too much...do ya think?
We are putting this black cloth between the rows this year for weed suppression and to generate some heat. Just in case we have a cold summer like last year.
Then, we have the upper garden that is close to the front door. The upper garden has things like radishes and lettuce, swiss chard, garlic and peas. It is for everyday picking, for dinners.
The big garden below is for canning and freezing. We like to make batches of Salsa, Marinara Sauce and Pesto for the winter.
Dad planted these Maiden Hair Ferns today in this new pot.
They grow wild behind my dog kennel :)
Look Dad! Your hops are growing. You need to learn to make beer!
No sunny Saturday is complete without the BBQ.
Tonight, it's chicken and mango sausage on rosemary skewers!
Followed by an after dinner swim.
