In spite of the heat and drought (or maybe because of it?), we got a number of exciting "first harvests" of the year. We got the first picking of pea pods. Here is "Super Sugar Snap."
And here is "Avalanche," a snow pea.
We got the first kohlrabis. These are about billiard-ball size, which we prefer.

I'm growing three kinds of broccoli this year. As always, "Blue Wind" is first across the finish line, making heads before the other varieties even have buttons.

About a month ago I took some drone photos of our gardens to document progress from a different perspective on a monthly basis. I took another set this weekend. Here's the "field garden." In this and other pictures you can really see the bad condition of the grass, but the garden is doing pretty well.

That's all for this week. Thank you for reading, and thanks as always to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
