This is the room we were in. Like I said in my last post there were about 30 women there. Most everyone was doing traditional scrapbooking and a few of us were doing digital.

Before I left on Friday I gave everything a good watering and harvested some raspberries and lettuce.
Sweet Husband, Son and Son's Girlfriend did a great job taking care of my garden while I was gone. They even picked some more raspberries and weighed them for me before they ate them.
It's a amazing to me how fast things grow when you are gone for a few days.
Photo Below: These strawberries are just about ready for picking.
Photo Below: I hand pollenated three female pumpkin flowers last week. When I got home I was happy to see they are growing.
Photo Below: I was hand watering the corn on Friday and did not see this...
So far there are two ears of corn each on six of my stocks. Today the wind picked up and I gave them a little wiggle. I could see the pollen falling on to the silks. I hope I get good even pollenation.

Photo Below: Bush beans are doing great. They are blooming and I have a few beans that are about 2 to 3 inches long.

And this next photo is for Granny over at Annie's Kitchen Garden. She once asked me if I really get up on the roof to take photos...
~June 1st Harvest~
One of the round zucchini was ready to pick today.
Well today was the day to dig into potato bed 2. If you remember from one of my posts the potato greens were not looking so well. I didn't have high hopes of getting much of anything. I also thought the beds might be infested with wire worms since I have seen them in bed 2 which is right in front of the potato beds. Well I'm happy to report I was able to harvest some small taters. I didn't find any pest's in the bed. Check out the next few photos for my harvest...
I was going to pull potatoes in bed 1 in a few weeks but now I think I might wait until July to see if I can get a bigger harvest. I will try potatoes again next year for sure.
Photo below: Potato bed 1. Not looking so good but I'm hoping for gold under there. We'll find out in about a month.
Photo Below: The red norland cleaned up real good.
