Hello garden gals and guys! Things are growing well in my garden but there’s not much to report on while I wait for things to ripen.
I planted some beans so that I can get a nice late summer harvest. My shallots look like they may be ready for harvest soon, too. In August, I’ll be starting some collards, kale, and broccoli for a late fall harvest.
In the meantime, I wait. But I did manage to harvest this beauty:
It’s an heirloom tomato called Persimmon. It is SO sweet and juicy it’s almost like eating a piece of candy. I sliced a bit and made a BLT yesterday. The rest I’m going to use today in a cucumber tomato salad. And I’m using a cucumber from my garden, too! This one:
I love it when I can make a meal or a side completely from food I’ve grown myself.
Well, that’s it garden gals and guys. I told you, short and sweet!
Until next time…
