Cool Summer, Delayed Garden

It has been so cool this summer here in the PNW that not only have my rhubarb plants started growing a second crop (woah), my strawberries are only now forming but more telling is that my blueberries have not yet had one turn blue – even vaguely blue. I am hoping though, I can see the first ones are starting to get the tiniest hue of blue on the edges. If we can get a couple warm days they may ripen. Thing is if it does warm up I will have what appears to be a bumper crop this summer! The bushes are loaded, even the new plants have put on berries. And with my little berry plantation now to over 15 plants….I want my berries! 😉

I suppose that is still better than sitting in 100* temps so I am not complaining! Low 60’s is actually kind of nice…and I am wearing a sweater right!

  1. I am about to get a gigantic crop of overgrown tomatoes! Wish me luck with all that Vitamin C!

    • I had a feeling this year and didn’t even plant one tomato plant :( I so love warm tomatoes right off the vine!
