I'm going to bore you all with more pictures of the garden. We've been harvesting salad greens for nearly a month now, believe it or not, and this morning I picked our first "real" vegetables - zucchini - before leaving for work.
|Pickling cucumbers are setting fruit.|
|The lettuce is doing great! I've cut a couple of heads and will probably be cutting more this week to allow a couple of these to fully come to a head. Meanwhile, I'm starting some heat-tolerant seeds so I can stretch "lettuce season" through until October.|
|Cubanelle pepper. My bell peppers are flowering, but don't have any fruit yet.|
|Okay, this isn't really a veggie, but it is a potato flower. The barrel is now full to the top with growing medium, the plants have broken through the top, and are flowering. In another couple of weeks, I can start picking new potatoes...or I can wait until the plants die back in the fall and harvest a big barrel full of winter keepers.|
|Zucchini. The big ones in this picture were picked right after I put the camera away.|
I can't wait until my first batch of tomatoes are ready. I'm going to make BLTs with 100% homemade ingredients: Home-grown tomatoes and lettuce, bacon from my own cure and smoker, and bread fresh from the oven.
