We have had an excellent shelling pea season:
So excellent, in fact, that nothing was saved. Not a single pea remains. Every one went straight from the shell into our mouths...fresh and raw!
I'm hoping to get in a second planting of these in about a week that would then be ready to harvest in September. Mmmmm....fresh peas.
T'is raspberry and blueberry season, in case you hadn't noticed:
We have a lot. So many that I'm having a hard time getting all the ripe ones picked each day. The ones that become too mushy and past their prime go straight to the chickens. They love a picnic on the patio:
And I'm very appreciative that all those overripe berries are making me a lot of these:
Yesterday evening, I harvested my first Yukon Gold potatoes! What an amazing thrill that was to stick my hands in the warm soil and find these little nuggets of happiness. Aren't they purdy?:
These two are my favorites (yes, I have favorites):
I get so attached to things around here, I'm wondering what I should name them all:
By the way, this is how we're currently eating the raspberries. Mine's the one on the left. With chocolate.
