The first shishito peppers:
The first Hungarian Wax pepper:
The first carrots were sampled for goodness (they're good).
The first Mammoth Melting Sugar snow peas:
The first "Desiree Dwarf Blauwschokkers" soup peas. These are from seeds I saved and some did not come up true to type (there are all green ones). This should be OK, but I'm buying fresh seeds from now on.
The first blueberries:
The first cherries, what we can steal from the birds:
For representational continuing harvests, we had Super Sugar Snap peas:
And turnips. Again, you can see the contrast between the abundant greens of "White Egg" on the right, and the skimpy ones for "Purple Crown."
The strawberries have finished. They gave us a good run.
The Kitchen Goddess busy preparing and storing the harvests. She made a large jar of pickled garlic scapes:
And for her Garden Club meeting, she cleverly made fortune cookies with garden wisdom fortunes contained therein.
We started seeing a cute furry visitor, sunning himself in the tall grass. Can you guess what it is?
A few days later there were three!
