Summer Heat Posted on July 21, 2020 by glenalmus 0 This is a photo from earlier this month of the kitchen garden. We had fairly moderate weather until last week when we hit 90 degrees. Yesterday was a scorcher. And these are photos from a couple of weeks ago of the barn garden. It’s getting harder to walk around in there now that we are in the thick of the growing season. Sometimes Darcy needs a little quiet time too. Blazing Star, Wild Quinine, Purple Coneflower and Calendula Last Fridays harvest Work has begun on our driveway! Just some teaser photos here – parking the cars on the field and Billy Young has brought in a lot of equipment for the work. Our cucumber plants are in the front yard. We are building up this flower bed with wood chips that will turn into soil in a couple of years. We decided to fill a trench down the middle with compost and plant our cucumber there. I wasn’t sure it would work, but we have already picked 2 cukes! Smokey and I have been meeting up on the back deck every morning for some loving. I’m allergic so I just stroke him with my one hand and try not to let him rub up against my legs. I largely fail at that. I always wash afterward. Orange and purple coneflowers Smokey has not trained Darcy like Frida has. He usually runs away from her whereas Frida will stand her ground.More about the driveway soon!
