U-Pick Herbs need some time to recover from the heavy picking this summer. It was our first year to try this, and we now know that we need a lot more plants! We are planning raised beds so that we can increase the planting space, and number of plants for next summer. Thanks for making this such a success!

At last, we have reached the bountiful period of summer. Now that we’ve had all the sunny, warm weather the plants have had plenty of time to kick in. I needed a reminder of what summer is usually like, so I perused my blog posts from 2009 and 2008. We are clearly a month behind where we usually are with all of these crops. But better late than never!

  1. >Thanks Shelley, yay tomatoes and basil! Also, is anyone at the Greenwood/N Ballard drop off accidentally taking eggs when not ordered? I've had a couple dozen go missing. 😦 😦

  2. >We are looking forward to this week's 'bounty', but have to tell you that the green beans from last week were fabulous. They are my favorite veggie and we really enjoyed them. Definitely worth waiting for!
