Market Gardening and Life at 7000 ft. in the Rockies of Colorado

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful."
Well summer is here. Temps were up in the 80s this week and the garden is thirsty.
Doing a little flood irrigation. The taters needed a little more water than I could give um by hand.
Strawberries 'r fattening up.
Cukes got put in this week. Trying black plastic mulch this year.
Picked up some heirloom raspberry plants at sweet pea.
Everything is just exploding with growth right now. You can see the difference day to day and there's more salad than we can possibly eat.
Greens are starting to head up. Butter crunch, redina, and tom thumb lettuces.

Wildflowers are really starting to come out. Larkspur and calypso orchid.
