The garden is really growing fast now despite our lack of rain. But nature provides and right after I came back inside to post these photos the rain started – our first in two weeks. It gently laps at my window pane as I type.
Last night, we grilled zucchini, small onions and potatoes and steamed green beans. Everything but the potatoes came from the garden, but my husband assures me we’ll be rolling in spuds very soon. He brought in some yellow squash too but I didn’t have room for that on the grill so we’ll have that tonight.
The tomato plants are outrageously big and green. I’m resting a bit right now because within a month I’ll be up to my bangs in toms ripening on the windowsill and waiting to be plopped into my boiling cauldron of herbs and peppers and onions. Or the best of all – sliced for a fresh tomato sandwich! The tallest plants below are a variety called potato tomato – you can tell them apart from the rest by the big leaves that look just like a potato plant.
How’s your garden growing this year?
