We've harvested couple baskets of elder blossoms. Most of we're dehydrating for medicinal tea (works much like aspirin, actualy contains some of the same chemicals). Also used some to make syrup (for flavoring water) and some we're letting to ferment with water, sugar and lemon to make a soda of sorts.

Radishes and strawberrys.

We had 3 black snakes, tangled up and dead in the netting over the strawberry beds the first of the week.  ???
I can understand one, but three? And of course, lost the new net getting them out of there.
The large one was about 6' long

You can keep your snakes. I've seen nothing but little grass snakes here though maybe 20 yrs ago a kid down the street was bitten by a coral snake. Kid's dad killed it and to kid and snake to the hospital. Fortunately traffic wasn't so bad then. Only 5 minutes hammer down. Coral snaked confirmed. :jaw-drop:

Last of the radishes. I'll plant more.

Heres the 65x95 garden. Didn't realize it was really too late for good pics.

A zucchini and a couple cucumbers.  We picked about 10-12 cucumbers yesterday.

Summer squash, carrots, green beans, rutabaga and an onion (really too early for the onion, but wanted to see how they were bulbing).
