The peas are totally done for the year. The hot weather did them in, but in exchange, we have blossoms on the cucumbers and zucchini, as well as plentiful tomatoes. I should pull out the pea plants and put in some lettuce for the summer. Once those tomatoes are ripe, it would be nice to have fresh "home-picked" lettuce to make some great summer salads.
We are still getting a few strawberries each day as well as raspberries. The raspberries are looking OK so far, just a little damage from the stink bugs. I encourage the kids to eat whatever raspberries they can find as soon as they ripen, and so far we've been able to keep up and avoid fruit fly damage.
Yesterday, I harvested some savory with preschooler's help. We dried it for about 18 hours at about 100 degrees in the Nesco food dehydrator until the leaves were crispy. Husband peeled the dry leaves off for me and put them in a zipper bag for storage. Now the goal is to remember to use the savory. We should dry the oregano next.
