Onions and Potatoes

We harvested some more vegetables today, including the rest of the onions and about a quarter of the potato crop. It was surprisingly hot out this afternoon!

With the vegetables curing on the deck, I then started more renovations in the back bed, putting dirt in north-south rows for next year. I'd like to have the back yard pretty much finished up by mid-September so I can focus on the major changes out front.

In the basement, my first batch of cider is ready to start tonight. A half day of sweating and swearing in the garage has taught me a lot about what to do (and what not to do) next time. I was too bushed to do any crab apple jellying yesterday but we'll see what kind of energy I have this afternoon.
