This is where all the "work" to get here just fades from memory.
Lots of greens and lettuce in the front yard where it's sheltered from the afternoon sun. Took out all the Dragoon heads and I still have a few Red Sails growing to full size. Tomatoes are coming and coming and we picked the first cucumbers! I think they grew overnight! Made veggie sammiches 100% from our garden. Hubby said that sammies and salads are all he wants in his lunches this week.
Carrots are still small, but still sweet. It's a tradeoff. Onions are bulbing! Pulled the garlic because the box was in the way. I think it might have gotten bigger, but this was a small test planting and I have been pulling them young for a while now. We want to try a large planting of Music this fall.
Snuck out a few little potatoes and the first peppers (cayenne and an pepperoncini that started to turn red.) Many more kinds coming very soon. A few sad strawberries that the birds pecked first. Thai basil, basil, and cilantro growing faster than I can use it. Made some ice cubes out of all 3. Lots will go to seed but that was planned. Planted more seeds for fresh eating later in summer.
Harvested the first Early Wonder Tall Top beets. Chiogga, Bull's Blood, Baby, and Crapaudine are coming soon, hopefully before it gets any hotter. I boiled then chilled them and put them in a salad. I don't know what I am going to do when I run out and have to go back to canned. Lots of leaves now to pilfer too,
I never imagined how much I would enjoy this!
