I’ve never visited Crystal Spring in the summer, so I was excited to experience colony life during this season of nice weather. 68 and breezy in late July? I’ll take it!
My sweet friend Anita was kind enough to let me tag along with her when the ladies worked in the garden.
First up was cucumbers. The ladies pick every other day and we’ve been eating fresh cukes for lunch – so good!
I love pickles, but these cucumbers are for eating fresh. Stay away from the dill!
They’ve had problems with stubby carrots the past year or two, but they tasted great!
Last were raspberries. Anita said I could eat as many as I want..I may have eaten a lot.
Alannah came out to help for a while.
Only pick the red red reddest ones, Alannah (age 7) admonished me.
She’s a good helper.
My little garden buddy.
