This month was lower than the last seeing as we were away for more than half of it.  Some of these are quite minuscule harvests from the garden, but I am glad that I was able to forage a few different things.  Still not as much as I hoped, because unfortunately the Kamloops area is blanketed in wildfire smoke and has been for about a month.  We've had air quality health advisories out asking us to stay inside and if we do go out to limit any strenuous activity.  Not all my foraging is 'strenuous', but a lot of the time I was with Little Forager, and I really didn't want to expose him to a lot of smoke, so we mostly chilled inside with Thomas the Tank Engine. 

I am really happy about how my carrots are doing.  I have never had very good luck with them before, but this year they look really great!  My garlic isn't in the total for this month, but I did pull them in July.  I had to wait for them to cure before I was able to weigh them.  There's a picture below because I still wanted to include them in some way.  I also have a photo of one of my alpine strawberries because I haven't really been weighing them since I only get one or two per day and usually Little Forager gobbles them right up before we even get inside, so here's a photo so they can be included in this month's post as well.
