Finally getting rain! 3 1/2 inches, last week in August, and 4 1/2 inches, so far, in this storm, that started yesterday afternoon. Almost replacing the loss in the drought.

Too little, too late. But, still better than nothing.

This is my first year to try planting basil.

I picked almost a bushel, destemmed it and got it dried.
I ended up with about 1/2 a pound of dried basil.

My first year trying parsley too, but I have not picked any of it yet!

Had my first tomato Sammich(s) yesterday.....

I was a bit slow going this year and did not start my tomato and pepper seeds till may 5.

Sort of gardening related.
Spent some time out on Cape Cod this week. Went for a hike out to Race Point and discovered a motherlode of Beach Plums. Picked enough to make a batch of Beach Plum jam.

Found a “stoner” at the Wellfleet Flea Market that worked perfect to get the pits out.

Wild cranberries need another couple of weeks to fully ripen.

Nice find. Wish I could eat jams and jellies but thanks to Uncle Sam giving me diabetes, I have to lay off the sugar, even donuts!

I’ve known a couple of stoners over the years, but they didn’t look like that. :D

Plums are good,---we used to get wild ones here til they bulldozed out the timber so they could get 1 more row of corn.
Been a wild summer, ---storms, damaged crops, etc. We are in the process of salvaging whatever we can and diggin sweet potatoes. Got some pix. but will have to resize them before they will post!

Had our first frost Monday.
I was ready with the frost blankets though.


Been getting my fill of tomato sammiches.

Got 2 rows of potatoes brought in yesterday.

4 rows to go!

Time to start canning tomato sauce and tomato juice!

We’ve had 2 years of lean strawberry production due to a vole infestation.
2020 we put new deer fencing up and last year added a composite board and chicken wire down 6” below the surface. We also used a variety of pesticides, but they still got in. Combined with some sort of fungus, we decided to start over.
18’ x 25’ area.
Digging out the old dirt by hand was time consuming, so I put the IH100 grader blade on and made fairly quick work of removing 8” of dirt. Just need to finish grade the bottom.
Then, install 1/2” x 1/2” hardware cloth across the bottom and up the sides.
Then, shovel in the new dirt.
New strawberry plants in April from Nourse Farms in Whately, MA.

Nourse has the best quality plants I've seen. Should do well with them. (If the voles decide to share)

We (Donna) buys all her strawberry, raspberry/kane, and asparagus from Nourse. They are excellent!
