A Harvest has Begun
Our veg garden is behind those of other blogger friends. For a while now, I have watched with anticipation, hopeful the beans and tomatoes would soon be ready. Shall I say, I was feeling a bit disappointed ours were taking far longer than expected(((. Today however, we did manage our first good crop of beans: Dragon Tongue, Blauhilde, Goldmarie and Fortex, the most tender of them all.
We are also eating late strawberries and tiny sweet plums (no they are not cherry tomatoes in the photo))).
The custard white zucchini are still going...STRONG! How many ways can you eat a zucchini, even if it is a special and tasty one?
Do you notice the little green nubs to the top left of the platter...they are radish seed pods. Chopped up, they added a good bite to our tomato salsa tonight...Speckled Roman, Purple Calabash, Scotia, mint and radish pods...simple food with great flavor. Thanks L for the SR seeds!
