Summer Updates

We've had our fair share of rain this year, I haven't watered a garden in 10 days. This is good and bad. Good because I don't have to water. Bad because we get about 3 months of summer and who wants rain for so much of it? But I choose to look on the bright side, I don't have to worry about dry, stressed plants. And oh my are they going to town.

Dahlias

Fava Beans

Sugar Snaps

Fireweed-amazing color this year, I suppose that's due to the volcano last year all the ash can really amp up the soil

Corn-struggling but hey we're in Alaska, right?

Cerinthe

ZUCCHINI-remember my shame? The shame of being an Alaska Master Gardener who can't grow zucchini? Yeah that's over, we got zucchini. I can't wait to grate some and freeze it for winter use!

The big garden

New geese for Christmas dinner

Fresh carrots

Dill a go-go

 A new flock of turkeys for sausage

Have you ever seen a baby turkey posturing like that? Crazy! They're only 4 weeks old and about the size of a cantaloupe.

Peace and Love--
