Farming Doesn't Wait for Cool Weather

Neither do visiting friends.

Without further ado, our final potato harvest for 2011, Rose Finn Apples.  Due to several factors, including later planting and being planted in a new place, the harvest was meager compared to our previous bounty.  They still look like fun!


 Shooting for great and small...

 And the survivor tomato survives...

Our neighbor asked us where we'd been, and James answered, "It's been too hot for a once a week farmer."  But we've been back.

I think the heat is even frying the poison ivy.

Until next time, remember, this is not paradise.  It's Purgatory Ranch.

  1. I just used the last of the delicious potatoes you brought me to make chicken pot pie with an herbed mashed potato crust. YUM!

    I hope the heat lifts soon!
