Patio Gardening update and Berkshire Blue Cheese at the New Amsterdam Market this weekend!

Hello all!  This is going to be the last post for a few days (10 to be exact) because I’m heading to Israel on birthright starting tomorrow.  But, I wanted to leave everyone with an update on the patio garden.  Everything is growing so nicely!  The pole beans have taken on a life of their own and are making their way up the trellis.  I think when I get back, we might have some beans starting to grow!  Hopefully the cucumbers will also start making their way up soon!

The squash

I can’t wait until we get some squash blossoms.  Those are going to be very tasty indeed.  So, I think for my first time really growing anything, my veggies are looking good!  I’m getting impatient because I want to start making my own pickles!

Also, a heads up, my father (owner and cheese maker) of Berkshire Blue Cheese is going to be at the New Amsterdam Market this weekend!  Be sure to stop by and say hi!  The market kicks off on June 27.  As per his facebook update, he says, “stop by! eat some samples and schmooze!!”  I won’t be there for obvious reasons, but you’ll see me the next time.  He’ll be there from 9:30am–12:30pm and you can find the market at South Street under the FDR Drive. This is downtown Manhattan on the site of the old Fulton Fish Market.

So long for now and I’ll be back on July 4!
