Hi friends – sorry to be blog-lagging (blagging?) lately, just not enough time in the day. I went to San Francisco for a friend’s wedding and took about 80 hundred photos of street gardens there, it’s going to have to be an ongoing series.
Here is a parking-strip salad stuff pic from before I left. I think the lettuce is mostly bolted now and the peas are on their last legs/vines, but it has been a great year for my usual few garden produce varieties this year. The new stuff, not so much – if I have time, I will write about my crop failures and maybe get some of your thoughts on how/what/if to do better next year.
If there’s anyone who has Sunday afternoon free this week (7/19) and wants to join the Seattle garden blog crew at what should be a new benchmark for fun gatherings, please feel free to leave a comment here or email me at email@example.com – Daniel Mount and his partner Michael are hosting a harvest picnic at their place, which Daniel describes as a small (7 acre) farm nestled in Carnation Marsh , 150 acres of Audobon Society bird (and bear) sanctuary” which includes “a 160 ft x 60 ft vegetable patch.” Wow. I’m assuming the bears will have other things to do than talk about why we blog and which blogs we enjoy reading, as we will be doing while munching delicious salads and finger-foods under the cherry tree.
