We've been eating from the garden for a couple weeks now. First it was lettuce, then a few green beans. DW has been picking kale daily for the past week to put in a shake she makes for lunch every day (I'll pass, thank-you.), and we already have more zucchini than we can eat. In fact, our first over-sized zuc went to the deer today. We have a doe with two fawns and a yearling buck that wander through every day.
Tonight we will eat the few All Blue spuds I dug up today. The biggest one in the photo is about three inches long. I'll be cooking them on the grill with a little olive oil, some red onion and Mexican Roja garlic in foil.
A couple steaks will accompany the potatoes, as well as a couple kabobs of zucchini, shallots and miniature sweet peppers. And I know there are a few Sungold cherry tomotoes on the tomato starts we didn't sell to our client.
We haven't had a lot of luck growing beets in the past. Couldn't really tell you why... maybe because I have always direct-seeded instead of using starts. I had a surplus of beet starts this year, so they went into the garden, even though I didn't hold out much hope for anything but greens to put in our salads. Well, much to my pleasant surprise, we have a nice crop of good-sized roots. We will share these with another couple up the road who have an orchard. Peaches must be about ready.
