The cherries are ripe...so Mark picked them yesterday while I was working on the flower beds.
Mark picking cherries. I think thoughts of cherry goodies was motivation!
This is all we got this year --- not a very big crop but they will make
luscious jam and pies.
So, Mark and I drove to Kearney one morning last week and JoAnn and I dug out the hostas. I asked her what kind they were and she didn't know the official name and told me they started from one plant given to her by her mother-in-law, Mary. So our hostas are Mary hostas. They look fabulous and seem to have settled in nicely.
|JoAnn and me digging hostas --- aren't they beautiful?|
|Here they are at our cottage, settling in their new bed|
|These 'Mary' hostas grace the front of our cottage|
|sweet potatoes and leeks|
|carrots and swiss chard|
|lettuce and arugula|
|the potatos are exploding|
|and, the tomatoes are thriving but no tomatoes yet|
|And this was my view from the kitchen window today - so lovely|
