Veggies of the Week
It's that time of year again! The garden is going into production mode finally!
We have had such a rainy spring that it has really taken it's toll on our city garden plots. The rain has caused a boom in the bug population and the soggy ground has inhibited healthy balanced growth. We haven't been out there in a few weeks, letting things dry out a bit. But we were surprised this past weekend to find a nice bounty waiting for us to pick.
Chinese cabbage, swiss shard, lettuce, and our first beets, cucumbers, and zuccini. There are some tomatoes on the vine, carrots, onion, and herbs are looking healthy. Looking forward to a great year full of fresh produce! (Oh, and yes, those are orange cucumbers in the pic. I think we left them on the vine too long. )
