Default Opening Day....

I couldn't resist this bit of humor..
We are starting to get a few things from the garden. Have had several banana size zucchini, green onions, a broccoli, cauliflower, and a few pickle size cucumbers.

As wild fruit goes there are some wild raspberries in the big pasture no other critter has discovered yet. Raspberry patch by the chicken yard is not ready yet. Wild Honey Berries (hascup?) are starting to be ready to pick. Tame pie cherry tree (no name available) is ready and will be gone in no time when the first bird appears. Wild Saskatoon berries are late as it is dry.
Always fresh.

"Opening Day," here means one thing - Hunting Season!

Enjoy your harvest!

We, too, are just beginning our harvest. Lettuce, radishes, and green onions have been going for a number of weeks, but our broccoli, Romanesco (broccoli/cauliflower), and cucumbers are just beginning to appear on the table. Tomatoes appear to be ripening in the greenhouse, and peppers are available as we need them. Early cabbage will soon be ready also.
