Regardless of the size of these two turnips, many of the crops are slowing down. You will notice the list shortening. This is just the kind of thing that I think of when I think "room for improvement". Next November, we will all be rolling in the vegetables, figuratively. Even with my disappointment in the shortening list, I have to take a minute and appreciate how wonderful it is I get to try again.
SO this week, I know, I know, I swore to the garlic right? Well, some events out of my control prevented that adventure from being completed, however I did enjoy blasting led zeplin while shoveling compost out of the bed of the truck with a great friend. And the ground is in the final stages of preparation. One more week... the garlic said it would wait for me.
I did get started disassembling my springtime labor. Those tomato trellises are coming down! All the twine is cut and the stakes are ready to come out of the ground. The plastic has been pulled from the hoop house that sheltered our tomatoes for so long. Oh cleaning...
A few notes for this week: It is the first time the Somerville market will be on Division street. This is the pedestrian walkway in the heart of downtown, across from the old Woolworths-turned-awesome-antique-store. Instead of running until six, the market only goes til five. I am sorry I didn't mention this sooner, I only just found out. It should be a grand time. Very scenic, very fun. Many of the other vendors will be there: The Farmer and The Chickpea, Ester's Treats, Gourmet Fruit and Nuts, Silver Birch Kitchens, and Fertile Crescent Farm.
Another note: This may be the last week for Ginger. It is time to stock up.
