Today was the day when we had my sister-in-law, her kids, my in-laws, their best friends, and the friends’ son and daughter-in-law and their kid over. The husband from the 2nd couple is an avid gardener, and the next generation is into it a bit, too. Tons of strawberries came out of the garden! Tons and tons! And at least 3 baskets of blackberries made their way to the house and people’s cars. We went for a nice walk out back and there are a lot of blackberries out there.
I’m starting to get serious about my need for a food dehydrator. My sister-in-law is trying to make some fruit leather in the oven (with it off, I think). It’s just so humid in our house… although it is still 80 degrees in here!
I pulled a broccoli the rest of the way out of the ground today. It was starting to wilt, but I’m not sure if it’s because it didn’t have a lot of roots, or because the roots were eaten by a gopher. A lot of the plants were too tall when they went in, and they grew a bit sideways before they straightened out. This might make them more vulnerable to just getting pulled out of the ground because of their weight (?).
One thought on “Vistors and mega-harvest”
I also picked a basket of green beans from the east side of the bed!
