When I return from a vacation, I am always amazed to see the growth that has occurred in my garden in my absence. This is what I found this time. They are radishes. Some are 4 feet tall! I had no idea they could do that. They were overwhelming the peppers and basil trying to grow behind them.
And I found these had started to bloom:
We also discoverd the cherries were ready to harvest. I took this picture yesterday morning. But, by the end of yesterday, the birds had had a feast and they were gone. My only consolation is the fact that they were pie cherries and I'm not terribly fond of pitting enough cherries to make a pie. Okay, that was a lie. I would happily have done so, because, well, I like pie THAT much. Darn birds.
Next year we need to plan our vacation time better. We left in the height of the strawberry harvest and had to sacrifice the last pickings to the neighbors. So, I won't be making as much strawberry jam as I had hoped. I'm not going anywhere during the raspberry harvest. I guarantee it!
Of course, the posts on the blogs I read had grown much like my radishes. Getting caught up on everyone is taking some time. I missed two Works for Me Wednesdays, and the idea of going through all of them is also overwhelming. But, if I don't, how will I know if I am posting an idea that has already been posted? And what if I don't read and miss something that would've completely changed my life for the better? The laundry was less intimidating.
We had such a great and bloggable time on the Cape. I have a myriad of posts milling in my head, and pictures, and I don't know where to start. I am really excited about sharing about so many things that I love. Of course, they may be very boring to others. So, if you don't like beaches, the sea, history, architecture or antique clocks, I apologize in advance!
