Today's Post Is Brought To You By The Letter "S"

Just a few quick photos from my day in the garden yesterday.

The strawberry patch is suddenly bursting with flowers and fruit. Now as long as I can keep the robins in check, it looks like we'll have a bumper crop.


The wild salmonberry bush on the edge of my garden is also loaded with berries. I usually leave these for the wild birds, but if there's an abundance, I might just have to experiment with a batch of salmonberry jam.


I startled this mother wolf spider while weeding the pea patch. She was pretty speedy despite having to run with her nest (the white ball) in tow.


My kids are both off on a year-end camping trip, so I'm headed for the garden. I hope you're enjoying your day!

i think my kids need a year end camping trip, or maybe it is me who does!

we come across hundreds of those mamas and baby nests. i love to relocate them from where i dig because i'm certian they are a huge part of why we havce so few pests. i almost wince when the chickens gobble one up, but i suppose they need to eat their bugs too. :)

We have quite a few of those spiders in the garden too (maybe because the chickens can't get in there). I don't often see them with the nests though - very cool!
