We have had beaucoup rain this spring. If it wasn't raining cats and dogs, then it was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I'm not one to complain about rain (I've seen plenty of droughts, and that ain't pretty either), but we really needed a drying-out period. It feels like summer now, and it is H-O-T.
The lettuce and asparagus are handling the change in weather just fine, but we've eighty-sixed the spinach in the high tunnel. The heat-loving crops are now having fun in the sun!
All eleven varieties of tomato are flowering in the high tunnel.
Some of the plants even have lil'maters on them!
I love the bamboo stakes Ben procured for us. They are sky high.
Cilantro on a hot day means it's salsa time!
Basil + Tomatoes = Heaven on Earth
The blueberries are putting on quite a show.
We'll be picking a little over a month from now. My favorite.
I'm glad that we have enough strawberries to share with the birds. They've been polite about pilfering so far.
Strawberry shortcake is in my future. Whipped cream or ice cream? Hmmm...
