This morning Farmer D and I were on a mission -head hunting mission. To kill and destroy all harlequin bug on the premises. These natsy little buggers have totally decimated our newly planted salad sowing. Until the shipment of natural organic killer, pyrethrum, arrives it’s hand to hand combat to save our crops.
This afternoon hope to get loads of preserving done. Incoming apples, strawberry, elderberry, beans. Out going – butters, jams and marinate. A PTF friend brought over some delicious plums from her backyard orchard and will be preserving those also. Thanks L – love to do another ‘Crop Swap’ soon!
Later tonight our monthly co-op pick up at the Rose Bowl parking lot. Our co-op coordinator is on vacation so she’s asks us to take over the reigns whiles she’s on vacation.
Then, sending out good thoughts and healthful wishes to all our friends who are having health issues and bouts with some sort of nasty stomach virus that’s going around. Get well soon!
Wow, four entries today! Enjoy…
