Crops #'s 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 & 9 & 10

The pictures show the story of these next six crops in our summer growing season. The strawberries are producing nicely - they're not as big and sweet as the Pick Your Own Berry Farm sells but they're still a treat to the senses. If we had more rain this Spring, they might have gotten a little bigger but we're not complaining. This is the best we've done after many tries. The trick has been to keep the quack grass down so that the plants can develop.

The other picture presents a salad made by Bing. He picked, washed and prepared all the ingredients from the garden and then spread the Ranch and French dressing across them. The five tasty garden goodies are Buttercrunch head lettuce, spinach, Swiss Chard, kale and green onions. Sounds like a powerhouse of nutrients, doesn't it?

Thanks God, for all the wonderful food you have made available to us!
