How did three weeks go by? It’s been a busy time around here. The first of those 3 weeks was full of work for me, I worked 6/7 days which was nuts. After that I spent time catching up around the house and garden and then we were off to Saskatchewan for a wedding. This past week I’ve been doing things here and there around the house, doing a TONNE of walking (a post on that to come soon with an update on my health) and a couple night shifts thrown in there. So to say we’ve been busy is a bit of an understatement but it’s been good, so so good.
The rain hasn’t stopped in what seems like weeks. The yard and gardens are water logged and squishy and I’m really hoping for some sun this week to help the veggies grow. Despite the lack of sun things seem to be doing well although my tomato plants are really begging for sun, a lot of the fruit is split on the bottoms and the leaves are curling on a lot of plants – sure signs of overwatering.
I’ve had quite a bit of harvesting to do, mostly leafy greens, lots of kale and swiss chard. There have been 4 tomatoes that we have enjoyed and 2 zucchini’s which have been sautéed and loved. The spinach and radishes are completely done, pulled and composted and I’ve replaced them with three different types of lettuce. I thought we would be drowning in greens but actually we keep running out and having to harvest more! I’m finding that I’m just becoming more creative in incorporating them into our meals and so far everyone has enjoyed it which is a very good thing :).
Despite me not writing posts with updates I’ve been taking pictures with intentions of blogging so here’s pictures from the week of July 3.
Now from the week of July 10:
Finally, this past week:
Well that’s it for now. Hopefully this week I’ll have time to do some more blogging that’s not just gardening.
