With a Saturday off from Market, and three decent rainstorms, garden work seems more purposeful and more productive.

Please note that “mulching” any crop counts as double work: that and stall cleaning!

But mid-Summer (especially after that hot/dry spell) is known to beekeepers as Nectar Dearth. So we’re holding on to see if pastures green up and bloom out, until the goldenrod takes over in September.
