What a wonderful weekend! Friends, family and fireworks! What more can you ask for? Oh yea, I can ask for it to COOL DOWN! It's HOT HOT HOT! (Hey that sounds like a song!) The poor garden is really feeling it too. It's looking pitiful. It is just not wanting to produce. I believe this year's garden is one of the worst that I have ever had. It's been too hot to get out and work in it.
Something is happening to my squash and zucchini. I see them starting to grow, then in about 2 or 3 days, I go out to pick them and they are gone. I think I'm going to call the FBI. The case of the missing squash. You think they will come and investigate? lol.
The tomatoes look like they are anorexic. Little twigs with tiny leaves. Hopefully they will come out of it. Poor things have had a rough year,flooding in the spring, and extreme heat now. If it starts to snow in August, I'm going to give up. lol.
One thing that is growing really good is the wild blackberries. Take a look at these babies.
Yes, that is a quarter! It won't take very many of these to make a batch. lol.
I guess I have blackberry jam in my future. (and pies,and cobbler,and smoothies,and..........)
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, blackberry queen.
