Out of the Apartment

I have been spending a lot of time away from the apartment lately, so I have not been posting as frequently as usual.

I have been gardening at the Turner House, where there is no shortage of greens to eat.

Along with tomatoes, I planted a row of squashes and melons. I had mixed results with squash last year, so it will be interesting to see this year's outcome.

The garden is surrounded by a large green fence that protects our plants from the hungry neighbors.

The Oregon strawberry season is finally underway. We picked 16 pounds of Shuksas in Helvatia last week. We froze three quarters of the batch and ate the rest fresh, which took several days.

Goldfinches are also in full bloom. American and lessers are making their way through many ounces of thistle seeds each week.
