Harvesting in the heat...

...just reminds me to stay hydrated. I have been harvesting Yukon Gold potatoes, Blueberries, Blackberries, Huckleberries & Strawberries today. It's hot work digging through heavy clay dry soil, luckily I borrowed a friends pick axe to make life a bit easier.

The Yukon Golds though are the true heroes of the day. They have been growing under neath an apple tree, 2 different plum trees, with nettle, nasturtium, & huckleberries around them Bugleweed was ground cover in the general area. surrounding them as well. They have not once been given water all season except whatever rain came in spring.

It's nice to see returns on low maintenance gardening.
