I don't have much going on out in the garden right now. Most of the greens I sowed pooped out in the heat of recent weeks. I am left with only a half row of mesclun and 2 tiny heads of red leaf. I am trying to motivate myself to go sow spinach, lettuce, etc. AGAIN.
I dug the remainder of the fingerling potatoes yesterday. The plants were still putting out spuds, but the rodents were beginning to enjoy tunneling in the mess of straw, probably thanks to the cool nights, so it was time. I ended up with just over 40 pounds total, off of 10 pounds seed. Not a great harvest by any means, but I will take it just the same. Speaking of great harvests, we came home after a night of strolling the beach to find a special delivery:
The cool weather is bringing nice sleeping weather, and the old dog is back to harassing the young one. In the heat of the summer he hides out in his new favorite spot, under the shed. How he gets his old body under there is a mystery to me.
Lastly, I will leave you with a shot or two of today's harvest. Not much, but it is still appreciated- especially the berries. (Confession: I have not picked the tomatoes yet.)
(P.S.- My potato onions arrived over the weekend, more on that to come!)
