It's been a while again, and I missed Harvest Monday because I was in Omaha visiting my sister/brother-in-law and new nephew! :) My husband spread a layer of compost around all of the plants, and hopefully it does some kind of mulching effort because it is HOT here! Currently 89 (feels like 93 according to weather.com) and supposed to be 94 tomorrow. That's pretty typical for summer here, but not normally quite this early.
My harvest has looked like this pretty much every day, and I've taken pictures, but they'd probably look pretty redundant! Bowl of snap peas every other day, and a bowl of strawberries every day. I think they are going to be taking a break for a while, because it is SO hot!
I harvested this lettuce today, and my husband wants salad for dinner, so that should be perfect. (Hopefully it's not terribly bitter!) I gave some of the outer leaves to the neighbor who has a baby bunny living in their shed that they feed. So far, this little guy has stayed out of my garden, so I don't mind sharing in the slightest! (As long as it is on MY terms!)
I've got tomatoes setting fruit left and right... I've got seventeen on this plant alone! :)
These two are almost full size, I think. From what I remember about paste tomatoes anyway. I can't remember how long it will take for things to start getting red.
I looked up pictures from last year at this time, and my tomatoes were about a quarter of the size they are now on May 27, so I'm feeling pretty good!
My broccoli is getting destroyed by these stupid worms. I keep picking and squishing, and they just keep showing up. I feel like my efforts are pretty futile. I just want to see some broccoli forming on here! Even if they are going to be loaded with "extra protein"!
