Second CSA Boxes!

I was ridiculously excited to haul this much food out of the garden for our customers the first week of June.

Lettuce, chard, kale, bok choy, spinach, thyme, marjoram, and rosemary. Oh my! If you are considering using row covers or cold frames in the future, I can’t encourage you enough! They are relatively inexpensive and miracle workers for us Northern gardeners. I will do a full post on season extension some time soon.

This weekend was the first sunny, warm one of the year here in the Helena Valley. It was incredible! Eric and I worked hard in the garden all weekend and now most everything is planted or will be tomorrow. Planting, transplanting, hoeing, mulching, building row covers, along with some household chores. We are happy; satisfied to see the results of all the work we’ve done and to begin harvesting what our labor has yielded. We are also very, very tired. A little after nine and, my friends, it’s well past time for sleep.
