Pictureless Posts

I like blogs with pictures.  Not that I mind reading, but the pictures add so much to the text.  Well, my camera gave up the ghost about three weeks ago and so I haven't posted the progress of my vegetable sales and all of the exciting details of my life.  ;-P

My daughter has a 35mm digital camera with so many bells and whistles, you need a semester of classes to be able to use it.  She has graciously offered it to me to use and I finally started reading the manual today.  Took my first pictures.  So I should be up and sharing with you once more.  Maybe the quality of my photography will improve too.  More pictures make the text tolerable?? ;)

Now I just have to figure out how to put the pictures onto my laptop.

Week #5

Hard to believe that summer's slipping away.  Summer garden crops are giving way to fall crops.  I hope to keep the CSA up and running into October.  Hoping. 

The green beans and cucumbers are abundant and I am so grateful.  The rutabagas, broccoli and brussel sprouts could use some cooler weather.  Looks like we might have to skip broccoli this year.

It's time to put food up for the winter.  Canning and dehydrating and my kitchen is always a mess.  I'm going to try Mama Pea's recipe for fermented vegetables.  Just finished up some dill pickles.
Have more beans to can and more garlic to dehydrate. 

God is good.  Life is busy.

Week #4

Okay, so I totally skipped week 3. 
Anyways, this week's offerings include kohlrabi and cucumbers.
The garlic was harvested so garlic powder should soon show up in the weekly shares.


We had a nice surprise this week.  Edyth blessed us with-Emily.
Have a great week.  Enjoy the summer-it's fleeting.

Week #2

News from the garden-
Deer have found the peas.  I should still get a decent amount, but they ate off the tops of some of the plants.

This week's boxes will have peas, basil, lettuces, chard, kale, carrots and maybe a few onions.  This is more of a challenge than I thought it would be.  Surely a learning experience.

My herbs beds are growing like crazy.  Unfortunately, the good growth has overshadowed my little rosemary and thyme plants and they're stunted.
Looks like rain this morning.  Better get out there and get some things done.

CSA

 Community Supported Agriculture.
Finally-I'm going to do it.  I'm selling shares of my produce. My garden is 3/4 of an acre.  Much more food than my honey and I can use. 

Produce available now is kale, Swiss chard, a variety of lettuces, rattail radishes, basil, oregano, cilantro and mints. Peas and new potatoes will be ready in about a week.

This is our hoop house going up.  It won't be beneficial this year, but next year is should extend our growing season by 2-3 months.

I'm praying for a good season. 
Since I'm very new to this, any of you out there who have some advice??
