CSA Weeks 3 through 6

It is summer, and I am pretty busy both in the garden and doing other activities away from home. I have missed a few weeks of CSA posts, so I am putting a bunch of them together this week.

CSA Week 2 - June 1st

This week is the second week of delicious spring vegetables. Everything is growing great in the garden, and it looks like more recognizable garden fare is right around the corner (stuff like potatoes, squash, beans and the like). But, before we get ahead of ourselves, let's enjoy this week's spring bounty:

CSA Week 1 - May 25th

Spring was slow going in my garden in March and Early April, but the plants are really growing now.

What that means is, the first round of spring goodness went out today, Sunday May 25th! Here is what's in the share:

I Dream of Gardening

It occurs to me that I don't have a lot to say every week, but I want to have a weekly glimpse of the garden so that I can look back on these posts in the coming years and know where I was on a given day this season. Last night I had two dreams that I remember about gardening, I don't usually remember any of my dreams. They both involved carrying or pulling vegetables up a hill, and in both dreams I had so much produce I couldn't get up the hill. If any psychologists read this, I am sure they'll have a field day. Anyway, here's my snapshot of the garden this week:

A few weeks ago, I told you those rows would be green soon...

April Showers bring May Oh-My-God-I'm-So-Behinds

That title probably doesn't make sense. Sometimes I don't, no big deal, it's late.

The mower's not for sale, quit being jealous of my retro lawn gear.

I woke up this morning to a nice rain storm moving through, and I went back to sleep. And for the next 90 minutes, I dreamt about flooded fields and unharvestable produce, ruined by a case of the soggies. When I woke up again, the worst had passed and although the walkways between my rows were filling up with water, all of the beds were safely above water level.

water in between the rows, I'm alright with that

Step on a rake, the garden gets a break

I am not the most coordinated person in the world. Neither are you, most likely. The difference is, I have proof. I was taking a tray of plants out to the garden to transplant, I put them down, stumbled backward and stepped on my garden rake. A tooth of the rake went through my shoe and into my foot. Ouch. Stupid, clumsy, me.
