With such a short growing season in our zone 3 north central Wisconsin, we have been happy to see our garden is bursting.
Early evenings, we water when the rains don't count,
and the weeding and the thinning is done.
This time, a basket of thinned carrots were a perfect snack.,
that we snacked on all evening and into days to come.
There is nothing like the taste of ' fresh from the garden.'
The sweet, sweet Sugarsnap Peas are beginning to make our mouths water as we wait for ' just ' the ' right ' time....
to pick and eat, fresh off the vine~
but then, along comes a 6' 6" giant that just cannot wait.
I was amazed the vines were taller than he is.
That makes for easy picking and a happy crop.
The highly nutritious kale and beet greens
are as sweet and tender as ever in their early growth.
~oops, someone missed a weed.
Thanks to my hard working crew, especially my guy,
the gardens are looking better than ever this year.
Can you tell he babies his potatoes and his
pumpkin patch that is beginning to
spread it's wings....I think we will be pleasing
a whole lot of youngin's this fall.
and this is exactly why we are up at the crack of dawn
...for there is always work to do.
If you have had a garden
or farm in any way, then you understand.
May you have a productive, tasty season.
No matter what zone we choose to live in,
it's all in how you play the game.
Rise and Shine
There's work to do.
~Life is good~
