First Harvest of 2009


So I went out back to check on our strawberry patch. I came back with this wonderful harvest.

Take my word for it. They look nice but taste just awful... I mean, you wouldn't ever want to come over and try our strawberries. You might never come back for fear of having awful strawberries foisted on you. So really, we'll just eat them all ourselves and spare you the agony.

They are especially awful on vanilla bean ice cream.

While I was out back, I noticed our first garden casualty.

That was our parsley. I suspect that Gerry (weegee or otherwise) got to it. I agree with Meg: no more posts about cute woodchucks, the little buck-teethed bastards.

Glad to see you've joined the Chuck Reviling group. My parsley looks just as bad. I've replanted all the peas, beans, lettuce, carrots and beets that ours devoured and installed electric fencing (solar powered, of course) to keep it out of the garden. So far, everything has resprouted. We'll see.

Evil, evil chucks. Evil.
