Finally, last night we started on the Summer Garden. We had several delays, due to out of town family guests. Family always comes first, and visiting was more of a priority.
(Caveman and Kristina)May seems to always be a busy month for us, next year we will plant late April or earlier in May.
Kristina and Beth both came out to lend a helping hand.
We started with the Tomato plants from the Green House...
and some Eisley Peppers

We won't be planting the seeds for another week, because I am headed out of town on the 8th for the weekend. I'm going to my sister, Jen's, in the Bay Area, for a family visit with my sis and brother.
I don't get to leave town very often, so I am really looking forward to the trip.
I've accepted the fact that I will just have a late garden this Summer.
June 5th is the Strawberry Moon.
According to the 'Farmer's Almanac'
The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries.
Yesterday morning we took our first trip to our local Farmer's Market.
I picked up Yummy blackberries (for a pie), strawberries, zucchini, peaches, nectarines, and cherries.
Our Farmer's Market is small and filled with the goodness of local produce. I'm looking forward to more Saturday mornings at the market.
