Early July would be my favorite time of year in the garden. It’s the kind of moment when everything is falling in place. Pretty much everything is in the ground, the weeds are still manageable (don’t look to where my strawberries are supposed to grow), everything is green and the first harvest is in. I have been busy in the garden, the berries (gooseberries strawberries, raspberries and currants) were full with fruits and I have been busy each morning with harvesting and evenings with prepping the fruits for preserving. I harvested the first peas & blueberries and the means need harvesting too. My blackberry bush is full with fruit that needs to ripen and I had lot’s of kohlrabi & rhubarb. I have a 5 liter bucket full of rhubarb liquor going right now, which will make some nice birthday & Christmas presents once it’s ready.
The little helpers are not helping much, they need an extra eye to keep them from getting in trouble, so the only time I get work done is if they are asleep. Jacob is practicing walking and is doing really good. When in the house he can walk several meters without help. Every day he is getting more confident (oh and he is so happy to walk, his face just lights up).
We have been at the doctors on Tuesday for vaccinations and Jacob started to scream bloody murder the moment we walked in the door. Then he continued to sob is little heart out, was breaking my heart. All is well not though but that boy has a good memory to even recognize the door. Otherwise we are not doing much, Niki is teething pretty badly and is very cranky due to that. I am just glad they are sleeping ok (I can deal with 6am wake ups). I can’t see anything but swollen gums but I hope the teeth will push through soon.
