In addition, Martin has 4 gigantic raspberries so far, Karin has 2 small clusters of blueberries coming along, and there are wild strawberries ripening as well. Our kohlrabi was nibbled right down to the roots by something, and the 3 artichoke plants, while leafing up quite prettily, probably won't amount to anything. But the snap peas! O! SNAP! I'll have at least a good salad bowl full in another week or so.
When I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,
Chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.
Merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,
Mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you'll be fairies all.
