Its blackberry time…
… and time for our annual trip to the beach to gather seaweed from the shore for making a compost tea.
Seaweeds are rich in nutrients that plants (and people) benefit from hugely.
Luckily, we are surrounded by the Puget Sound and her abundant offerings.
Abundant offerings in the garden too… its been a great year for our crops.
The long summer has been wonderful for the tomatoes.
Beaverlodge Slicers, Black Prince, Brandywines, Persimmons.
Beans and leeks.
Over wintering carrots and lemon balm.
A bountiful harvest at San Juan Island Farmers Market.
Another huge thank you goes to our intern Kirsten, who leaves us at the end of September.
She worked hard all season on scything, bed prep, planting, weeding and harvesting both cultivated and wild seasonal treasures…
May your future be fruitful and bright!
