Yesterday we ate the first potatoes and beets out of the garden, and today, after I harvested some garlic, Stuey, Nora and I picked a gallon of blueberries. It's summertime and things are getting ripe and ready to eat. The garlic bulbs were a little small still so I decided to leave the rest of the plants in the ground. I don't think I've ever harvested beets or potatoes in July.
The kids really got into the blueberry picking. There was no stopping them until we had filled up the gallon bucket. Nora wants to make pies. I foresee a lot more berry-picking adventures this summer. Patrick
