Well, it’s been a busy, busy, rainy weekend. Wednesday I had the farmer’s market (which I think I posted about), Friday Justin and I went down to Ann Arbor for the day. He had to go to work and I had some things to do around town. Saturday we drove down to Charlotte for my grandma’s birthday party and pictures. Then we drove back up to Dad’s house with my sister and went to see Jurassic World (Go see it, it’s AMAMZING!). We also went grocery shopping Saturday night and then shopping again on Sunday because we forgot a bunch of stuff….we’re awesome like that.
On top of all that it’s been in the 80’s here with nothing but rain, constantly. It is so humid here that it feels close to 95 at 81 degrees. I was just outside for 20 minutes and I think I lost 10lbs sweating. Gross…but true. I did manage to get you guys some pictures from the garden though!
The sunflower hut and my finger. It’s looking great! As soon as it quits raining (thunderstorms today), I will thin this thing out. It’s a little cramped for sunflowers.
This peach tree is easily out performing all our other fruit trees. However, by next week I think it will be surpassed by one of the apples.
My finger again. I just got done cutting all the tall grass around the Kale/Broccoli/Onion bed, that’s what all that is. I started stuffing it into the bed for more mulch. It’s getting too dense to weed without breaking things. I think I may have planted a little too much in that small area…oh well! We’ve been steadily picking 5-7 leaves from the kale a day and you can’t tell at all. It’s actually growing more than we can harvest truthfully. I may have to take some down to the farmers market.
The potato bed looks great! I’m super happy that the majority of the potatoes came up. There are still a couple baby ones you can’t see, but I’m sure they will catch up soon! When Justin mows the lawn next I’m going to have him dump the grass clippings here so I can mulch it and kill all those weeds.
The peas are coming along incredibly fast with all this rain. As you can see, all the baby weeds are too. If it doesn’t quit raining soon, I’m going to have quite a problem on my hands. First year gardens are always the worst with weeds.
Well, as you can see, everything is going great! I’m not doing much today, but tomorrow I’ll be baking all day and heading down to the Farmer’s Market again on Wednesday. Hopefully we’ll have a good day! There was an ad in the paper for us, so that should bring more people down!
Have a great day!

P.S. Some great news! I saw a TON of honey bees in our yard today! That’s a good sign for us!
