Harvest Monday 3/18/13

A sad day today at 22trees.  We lost one of our first chickens, Colonel Sanders, we had had her for 3.5 years.  She had stopped laying eggs about 6 months ago, and in the last few days had become pretty bad.  Yesterday she just sat in one spot for the entire day, and when I put her back in the coop I was afraid that I might have to put her out of her misery in the morning, however it was not needed.  We found her on the floor of the coop this morning.   Its funny how attached we become to our pets, and how much they become a part of our life.  We will all miss her.

Lots of lettuce and spinach.  We have been giving it away by the bag full

Of course oranges...

...and avocadoes

Lots of beets, this is just a sample, and probably the easiest thing to grow, potatoes.  The littliest farmer and I dug up about
20 pounds this morning.  TPW made a killer beet salad with lettuce and potatoes from the garden.  Wish we could grow a salmon tree!

Monday Harvet 3/4/13

Another great week.  Lots coming out of the garden.  Warm weather, 85 degrees both Friday and Saturday, however no rain!  Might get lucky at the end of the week. 
Cooked up the beets this week, pretty good

Lots of green, gave away 4 bags of lettuce, chard, spinach and kale this week to friends.


Tangelos, Mandarine, Fuerte & Hass Avocados, and of course eggs. 

Finally started digging up the potatoes.  These were some that I missed last year, every time I turned the dirt with the pitchfork I came up with these golden nuggets.

The ladies out for a Sunday afternoon stroll.
