Weekly Update - August 1, 2011
Summer is finally here - and hot! High temperatures have been in the upper 80's for a few days now. The pole beans are starting to climb up the teepee we made. Tomatoes are beginning to turn closer to yellow - on their way to red. Corn is just starting to tassel out. Raspberries and strawberries have really slowed down production - just a handful here and there.
The greenhouse is coming along. Jayme does a great job with the recycled materials he finds. The windows are recycled (with help from craigslist and a friend) and the redwood trim came from an old deck that was no longer wanted. I love the look of the redwood. Once he put the old boards through the planer, they look new again!
