- 1/4lb snow peas
- about a quart of broccoli crowns
- quart of strawberries ( I can't believe how many we are getting out of our tiny "bathtub" strawberry patch!)
- lettuce - every few days, we're picking enough for salads for four
In addition, we've got more chard and spinach seedlings. Our tomato plants are doing well (I just started tying them to their stakes. Also, I'm continuing to pinch flowers off for now).The peppers are growing slowly.
My homemade slug trap hasn't caught anything yet. We're handpicking the slugs when we find them. They seem to prefer the lettuce to the beer!
I still haven't figured out the identity of my mystery flower plants for certain. When I originally planted them, I thought the seeds were nasturtiums (they truly looked almost identical, granted they were a couple years old!), but clearly they are something different. It's kind of fun having a mystery plant in the garden. (Actually, as of Monday morning, I think I've figured out what they are!)
It's really wonderful hanging out in the garden, witnessing the "magic" of it all. It changes every day -- there's always a new wonder. I especially enjoy incorporating our home grown produce into my menu plans. If we had more space we could do much more, but even in this time space, we've accomplished a lot.
