Tues morning I got up early, picked up KAF and we BERRIED each other. This was my share, from Tait's.

On the way home I also stopped and picked a mess of St. John's Wart to dry and use as an anti-depressant. The part you use is the flowers, and they are best in full bloom. You can tell when that is by the activity of the BEES. We shared the patch.

Today I went over to finish weeding my garden. Not too bad for a first year plot, mostly untended...

I was surprised to find not just one, but several baby bell peppers (Ace seems to be the most productive)

and a few small tomatoes too! It was time to start "tomato bondage" (tying the plants to the support trellis... Celebrity is the variety with the fruit, thus far.

no. though KAF, whose yard it is in, has dogs and cats and so their scent is likely everywhere in the yard.

I have yet to see any evidence of "animals" beyond the dogs and cats, and the chickens, rabbits and goats in their pens... though the year is still young.

starwalker - I have pepper envy!!! I have picked 2 ripe tomatoes tho. I have to do some 'mater bondage myself. I've found that it helps to hold out a few cages until this time of year. Then I go back and try to position them where they'll do the most good. I am doing the raised beds, so no neat rows for this year.

Those are some great looking berries Star! Nothing like fresh fruit during the Summer. You can almost taste the sunshine in every drop of juice when you bite into them.

Fresh sliced strawberries and a small dollop of real whipped cream on a slab of angel food cake. Now THAT is summer in a nutshell for my house.
