Summer, as usual, is off to a slow start in this corner of the world. While the fruits & veggies are hanging on for sun, the humans are staying busy between rain showers.
Lots of fruit & flowers adding color to the grey weather. We’re supposed to change over to warm & sunny after the 4th (a PNW tradition) and I’m sure we’ll be non-stop scrambling to keep up with watering, weeding & harvesting. But for now, any sign of life is exciting.
The warm and humid weather is starting to rouse the dreaded blight spores in the potato patch. We are using new ground, but blight is nearly unavoidable here when conditions are right.
It’s also our birthdays this week, so we are taking time to celebrate bewteen chores (and downpours) with BBQ, beverages, and fiercely-played dart games. Bismarck bravely steps up to oversee the recrational proceedings.
