Gardens in full glory.
August is when the farm and the gardens are in their full beauty!Everywhere you look you see the fruits of our labor. Clean and weeded raised beds with various types of herbs happily growing, sipping in the nutrients from the soil and the energy from the sun. The hills with squashes are producing faster than we manage to pick them, trellisses are loaded with cucumbers for fresh snacking on, pickling types are in abundance as well which means the preserves making time is right around the corner, salad greens, tomatoes, early potatoes, cabbages, green beans, kohlrabi, beets, carrots, peppers, eggplants, and so much more. That is when we eat better than any roalty! And... flowers are everywhere, of course!
