In return for your patience, today I offer good news: proof that occasionally I DO successfully grow food!
In the past week, I’ve harvested:
A pound of snow peas.
|SO delicious, raw or cooked|
A small bunch of carrots.
|Cosmic Purple, Scarlet Nantes|
A sample of the different colors of beets.
|Detroit (green leaf, red root) Bull's Blood (read leaf, red root), |
Chiogga (White stalk, pink root), Golden (yellow stalk, yellow root)
And some broccoli florets.
Removing the center flower is supposed to encourage the side flowers to grow larger.
|If you click to enlarge this photo, you can see the tiny florets |
along the sides of the main stalk.
We still have a lot more vegetables coming, as long as we don’t have a flood, a drought, a freeze, or a heat wave in the next two months.
That’s not too much to ask, is it?
