Loving all the fresh salads for dinner! Yum Yum!
Sadly, we were struck with blight!
I'm sure you've heard of the Great Irish Potato Famine, where around 1 million people died--a terrible time in Irish history. Well, we had the "privilege" of experiencing potato blight first hand this summer on a far smaller scale, of course. Nobody died. Just my dreams of a freezer full of leek and potato soup.
They had to be dug up and discarded so that it wouldn't affect the rest of the garden. Such a bummer.
The tomatoes got enormous, but they also developed a case of something (do tomatoes get blight? Hmm...). Anyway, they sort of didn't do as well as their gigantic stalks were promising. So, my tomato saga continues. Someday, I'll get a beautiful ripe red tomato off the vine...someday.
We are now in the season of pears and apples from the orchard. I'll see if I can get some pictures of that one of these days. Here is Mariah in our sunken garden, where she LOVES to play. Enchanting, isn't it?
