The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

A fruitful week

Red raspberry

Another day, another variety of berry on the table. I do miss the passing of peak strawberry season, when I was able to gorge on half a gallon of berries per day all by myself. But the blueberries and red and black raspberries are quickly picking up steam and promise to fill in the gap.

Baby grapes

Meanwhile, I'm trying not to get my hopes up about the grapes that are starting to swell on their vines. Monday's anti-blight campaign seems to have removed most of the fungal issues, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we won't end up with rot spots on the fruits once they reach full size and begin to fill with sugars.

Zinnia bud

All in all, a very fruitful week.
