Summer line up

We are three days from our original departure from Kyrgyzstan.  I had been looking forward to being there a little longer, the crops are just starting to come in now.  lettuce , peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, snow peas, spinach, swiss chard, kale, zucchini and cabbages are all ready now.  

Our main reason to stay later was to help get the first weeding done on the gardens. When we were preparing to leave early I offerted to hire in more field workers to help get ahead of the weeds, but the guys said that it was alright , that they could do it... and they did .  I am so impressed with all the hard work that they did..

They have been starting at 7:00 am every day, and getting out of the garden before the heat of the day.  they can spend the hot afternoons here..

After the funeral, we have been getting things cleaned  up around the house.  Julie is sorting boxes trying to clear out the storage room, and I am putting a new top on the deck as the old boards had rotted out.  In a couple weeks we will start our  summer schedule.    If we are going to be in your area, let us know and we would love to meet up. Here is our summer ..
