The garden (well, part of it) is in full steam ahead! I think it's too HOT for the lettuces or cabbages to come through. But the swiss chard, roma tomatoes, peppers, and squash are doing great!
Now look at this! And an aerial shot of where we are today!
Squash in the front, tomato vines in the back, peppers to the right, herbs to the left.
Beautiful sweet peppers!The first harvest of the season was swiss chard.
(This was the swiss chard 4 weeks ago. Notice the empty plots around it? Yeah, that's where the lettuces and cabbages were going to be.)
And here we are today. There are 5 of these plants and they are hopefully going to produce all season long - like the Square Foot Gardening book says!
Freshly washed leaves ready for cooking....
this! We had our first meal with our "plenty" from the garden last night - Pasta with swiss chard, garbanzo beans and tomatoes - yummy! It actually needed a little more seasoning than what I put in it but that's ok. It's my first "from the garden meal". I'll keep trying!
