Heirloom Tomatoes

We've started to harvest some of our heirloom tomatoes. They've been slow to grow this year, at least it feels that, but they are extra tasty.

Last July Harvest

Picture of our last harvest for July. Tonight we also started our broccoli seeds and hope to have a fall harvest of them. The kids had a lot of fun helping, being careful to place the seeds in the holes we made.

First Commissioned Raised Bed

Last weekend I put together my first commissioned raised bed. It was a custom L-shaped design, using 2x8 and 2x6 Douglas Fir. I ended up deciding to pocket hole all the screws with my kreg-jig, so there are no visible connections. Although it was very hot and humid, I enjoyed putting it together with my dad who happened to be in town visiting.

Custom Raised Bed

"L" Shaped Raised Bed

If anyone is interested in one, and lives nearby, I can make this for $140. I will follow-up with pictures of the finished raised bed, once it is installed.

Strawberry Plants for the Garden Gate

For Father's Day Julia and the kids bought me four everbearing strawberry plants for me to plant in our new Garden Gate that I built recently.
