In a typical PNW summer, it begins to creep and get hot after the 4th of July festivities. We usually get that one rain and then boom! HOT time! We haven't reached that tipping point yet. Hopefully soon!
This year's gardens have onions, tomatoes, beets, carrots, zucchini, cucumber, radish, broccoli, artichoke, pumpkin, watermelon, garlic, corn, lettuce, peppers, and of course potatoes. We've also let a few things go to seed, like these carrots!
So who knows what folks will get with their Christmas baskets this year! Handmade salves, scrubs, creams, and maybe some glorious carrot, brocoli or kale seeds!
