After it was over, we went out and looked for damage. There were various limbs and brush on the ground, but the buildings and gardens were fine...a little stressed looking, but fine. We did have one apricot tree go down in the orchard. It was a sick tree, so it was probably weak anyway, but it did have fruit on it. Dassel was in the center of the storm and we heard about a lot of damage in the area.
We are still picking strawberries daily. The harvest does seem to be coming to a close though, as the berries are getting smaller. We may not have berries next Friday...we'll see.
The herb garden is growing like crazy and we have been trying to keep up with it. Em and I just harvested the dill (should get one or two more cuttings) and more chamomile. We just started cutting the lavender, and it looks like the cilantro is ready to be cut again. I really should plan for another "Cooking With Herbs" class, since people have expressed interest in it...maybe when the soap class is over. :)

The soap class is July 16th.
