We joined some school families early Saturday morning to pick blueberries. I'm just thrilled that this farm is less than five minutes from our house. The berries were the largest I've ever seen and were just dripping from the bushes. We picked more than two gallons in an hour, even with Ruby eating berries steadily.
After a brief stint of letting things go, John and pulled a massive amount of weeds out of the garden this weekend. There is black cloth under that hay, and I'm going to find some newspaper and buy more hay for the rest. The children and I planted tons of basil last night and handfulls of sunflower seeds.
I thought we would have it fenced this weekend, but maybe by next weekend. Apparently we are flirting with disaster considering that every neighbor put up deer fencing on May 15. I'm always in denial about how much these little projects are going to cost. I'm sure we'll be repaid in tomatoes alone when the "Mortgage Lifter" starts to bear fruit.

For now, the root cellar makes a great place for us to store our bikes, but with the arrival of this visitor in the photo the kids say that they are never going in there again.
