* Strawberries , that is . With today's haul we have enough for a batch
of jam ... half pints are in the dishwasher , berries are on the counter
ready to cap-n-smash .In addition , the corn is coming up nicely , I
will have to reseed a couple of spots though . Taters are boomin' , got
them hilled up nicely and mulched heavily with straw . I'm seeing a few
beans sprouting (blue lake bush) and the bunching onions are mostly up
now . The tomatoes got the cardboard then straw mulch treatment , trying
to prevent soil splashing on them to help prevent blight problems . And
yesterday I saw some of the beets have come up too . It's been a cool
wet spring , I feel like I'm behind - but I'm not really , summer's here
are pretty long and I won't worry about frost until early October .

sounds good to me.

strawberries are just starting to bloom here.
i'm hoping no more hard frosts, but we could still
get a few.

i am behind in some places, but that is because
i'm trying to get the fencing put up before the
lilacs and honeysuckles bloom and it's been raining
quite a bit. most the important stuff is done well
enough for now. just whatever extra gardens i can
get ready before planting the warm season crops is
nice to have done.
