- the first of the black raspberries. Our raspberry bushes are different every year. They pop up in random places, and the number of berries really varies also. This is just the start of the season, right now, it's looking to be a good year.
- The last of the peas. They'll probably hang on for a few more days, however, the extremely warm weather we had this week caused them to shut down a bit. It was asked last week if the telephone pole peas were good producers. They are, but I didn't trellis them as well as I could have. In the fall, I'm thinking of using a ladder.
- The last of this run of radishes. The french breakfast proved to be a nice variety. I'll buy those seeds again.
The weather (in the high 90s for two days), forced a transition in the garden this week. Many of the greens bolted, whereas the tomato plants quadrupled in size, and gained their first flowers.
Leanne's salad offerings are just lovely! (As she wrote - "Some spinach (bloomsdale and Olympia) and lettuce (speckled and esmerelda) along with a few strawberries, French breakfast radishes and non-vining peas (forgot the variety). Adding a little bit of crumbled bacon, a hard boiled egg and some local Gouda.... Yum!")
Remember, If you'd like to to join in the fun, add your picture to my flickr pool. I'll be posting everyone's haul every week here on the blog. Please add a description to the picture that includes what's in the picture. If you're growing any neat heirloom varieties, please include that information also. Finally, if you have a blog, make sure to share your address.
I look forward to sharing your photos, and learning about what you're growing! (please see my original post on this topic if you'd like more details.)
