I've been busy in Berea and have been away from the ASPI garden most of the past two weeks, which is also the period in which it RAINED! Which means that on my return today to the ASPI office, there was a pound of okra to harvest, 12 pounds of potatoes, handfuls of beans, a pound of turnips, several ripe tomatoes and scores more on their way, a bush of lamb's quarters, 4 cucumbers and 2 heads of cabbage. It's our biggest harvest yet in one day and considering that our garden started out late and looked puny for a long while after, we feel pretty good here in Mt. Vernon! We also have some 10 ft tall sunflowers for the enjoyment of bug, bird and person passing by.
