Gonna eat a lot of peaches

This is a peach shortened week. That's what I've kept saying in my head since last Saturday. If you couldn't tell we love peaches here. Sooner or later we'll get around to getting our own trees in the ground and harvesting our own. I'm sure even then we'll still head down to southern Illinois for peaches, however. So yeah, we're leaving for peaches tomorrow - after my desk jockey job is done. We're gonna take the kids through some Lincoln adventures on the way because we're from Illinois and all and that's what we do. It makes the long drive longer and shorter as well.
Besides thinking about peaches non-stop, we've
been babying our fall seedlings. I just pulled the fabric covers off of the rows on Saturday and they are doing awesome. Other than a few raccoon footprints scattered around it looks like the seedling got off to a really good start. We have red romaine, mesclun mix, peas, spinach, chard, beets, radishes, and carrots all sprouting. If all goes well , there will be all of these through September and into October. We also spent some time thinning and transplanting kohlrabi. Some of these are gettign close to a foot tall with a few already starting to get that swelling in the stem.
