Earthly Delights

We went to Sauvie Island this morning to a U-Pick farm for fresh strawberries. We picked about 20 pounds of juicy sweet Hood berries, brought them home and popped them in the freezer (those that we didn't pop directly into our mouths). What a treat that will be in January. We'll probably go once more for another batch and then it's on to...







blueberries! These are in our garden but we'll need to supplement with some U-Pick. We do have enough raspberries in the garden to keep us happy for the rest of the year.


In the non-edible sections of the garden, here's what bloomed this week:


Hydrangea...

...poppy (this one survived the curious fingers)...

...and the lavender keeps the bumble bees busy.
