Pulled a quart and a half or so of strawberries today. Looks like the June-bearing plants are paying out a bit early this year. I guess a few days of 90+ temps and BLAZING sun will do that. There's a couple more quarts out there that still need a day or two to ripen up. The ever-bearing plants have TONS of green berries on them....it'll be a few weeks yet until they're ready. Pulled a bit of basil as well. Not quite enough for a batch of pesto but I just couldn't resist.
Putting in the rest of the garden this weekend. We got some heirloom Brandywine tomatoes and a bunch of cherry tomatoes ready to go, along with a bunch of other stuff. Every year we plant tons of tomatoes. I HATE tomatoes. Can't stand 'em. But every year....in the ground they go. Chrissy likes them, Gavin too. Ivy's still a bit too young to get her take on them.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
