FarmerMouthy

Hello and welcome to MrsMouthy’s farm!  This week we are featuring:

Carrot

(4 for the price of 1, as these are actually all attached.)

Lush, lush basil plants

(The leaves are best when they’re yellow, right?)

And two-foot-tall lettuce

(It’s a bit bitter, which has nothing at ALL to do with the farmer who planted it.)

I was going to make a comment about how while this food looks mutant and/or sick, this is what truly organic food looks like…but then I remembered the neighbor went out and sprayed every last leaf of everything with pesticides a month ago.  64 gallons of pesticides on our two-bed vegetable garden.  He meant well.  He also meant well when he pulled up all the corn I planted to put in his cucumber plants.

Anyway, at least I remembered to cover the blueberry bushes with netting this year so the birds won’t eat all the berries.

Something tells me I forgot to do something else to the bush though…

(I have no idea how anything could die of thirst in the weather we’ve been having.) 

(I think this was suicide.)

  1. Where do you get that netting?! This was my first year with blueberries and I didn’t get a single one, the birds beat me to them.

  2. My friend just gave it to me–I think you can just buy some tulle at a fabric store though. I’m impressed your blueberries already ripened! Mine have been almost ripe for about 3 weeks now…
