We harvested more potatoes, broccoli, peas, and thinned the carrots resulting in some sweet little baby carrots to eat on July 23rd. Can't wait until the beans are ready - any day now!
On a flower note, the kids helped me carry rock to the shade garden yesterday to expand it! They had so much fun - I totally let them design the shape of the shade garden, complete with stepping stones that were repurposed old cement pavers that were hiding in a pile behind the garage. The bonus is that it cleared it out a little behind there. I've also decided that our old river rock from around the house will be spread behind the garage since it's so shady there nothing will grow. But one thing at a time - there's a lot of work to do out there in the shade garden (sod removal, haul in topsoil and composted manure, plant plants... whew!).
