Midsummer

August rolls onto the downhill side it’s time to harvest the second round from the garden. Another good batch of green beans (they are still blooming!) and the last of the garlic. As this second crop of garlic goes into the shed to dry the first bunch I picked a couple weeks ago come inside for cleaning up.

Garlic Potpourri

These are the smaller varieties we planted. Last fall I put down eight different types as an experiment. No taste tests yet but some types are too small a head for me to bother with them again.

Earlier this week I had company at work.

This fella hung around every day for most of the day. In fact he is the reason I was working at this location. He seems to have decided that this is his turf and is getting a bit too aggressive. He sleeps under the deck and has started to challenge the homeowner when she comes out, snorting and pawing. So, we are closing up all the undersides of the decks and outbuilding. Now he will have to find his shade in the forest.
