I know you're probably looking at my tiny basket and laughing. However, today's basket is just a glimpse of what's to come.
In the basket this week:
- We've been getting this amount of berries every day.
- The onions are just staring to bulb (the one pictured is a variety that stays rather small, but produces mid-summer).
- The cucumbers have so many flowers! I picked eight this week.
- The beans are just starting to mature. These are the first of each of the colors. Green, purple and yellow, I planted the perfect amount this year. It's enough to eat in the summer months, but not overwhelming. We've tried saving beans in the past, and they taste icky. Summer beans will be good enough for us.
From your flickr photos...
Tiffany from 20x20 is collecting tomatoes like crazy these days! (Mine won't be here for at least a month)
oregano, ishikura spring onion, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, picolino cucumbers, salad leaves (speedy mix lettuce, little gem lettuce, pak choi, spinash, pineapple mint, calypso coriander), purple shiraz mange tout - Joyful Lova has some beautiful produce to share! (I love those purple beans/peas) I wonder how they taste?
Liesl has an insane amount of squash. I learned that lesson my first year. This year, I planted my zucchini really late. I'm really okay with the fact that I'll only have it for a few weeks. A few weeks of zucchini is all I need. Liesl blogged about her garden harvest here.
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.)
