Things I will be eating in the next 24 hours.


As in the garden is booming.

Some onions and beets!

Check it, it looks like real live grocery store broccoli! *

Purslane, yes some purslane grew. It isn't super tasty and lemony like the stuff I buy at the farmer's market, but I'm sure it's healthy. (Off to the side is kale which you've already heard about.)

Basil finally decided to show up as well!

This squash I will not be eating in the next 24 hours, but I'll be eating it someday!

*For those who are interested, after a sad week, the aphids ditched the broccoli and went flying on over to the kale. For the most part the broccoli is but free. But some of the kale is kind of a disaster. Better the kale than the broccoli in my opinion!

Yay! Glad to see success with the beets and onions! The broccoli is looking great to. Is it bad to feel a bit smug when I got to the farmer’s market and I don’t see anything that I can’t get from the backyard? This of course excludes the elusive fresh tomatoes. Time to start planting fall crops (curses, did I just mention fall?!!). Soon my neighbors will avoid me in hopes of not receiving more zucchinis…
