The garden is producing now, and not just a little supplement to go with dinner, but a whole mess of fruit and veggies that we are eating and sharing as fast as we can. We're quickly surpassing our consumption and finding ways to save and preserve food as we can. We never seem to leave the house now without a bag or two of produce to unload on some unwary (and lucky) household.
There are still a few crops we're waiting for (tomatoes, cucumber, some squashes, corn, etc ) but most of the garden is going crazy. I'm already trying to pull the bolting lettuce and find space for the fall crops to get underway. I'm beyond excited about the current state of my popcorn (growing in back of this garden here). I could eat popcorn everyday, so I can't wait to have my own home grown snack!
How's your garden growing?
Each Friday I share photos from our garden with an update about what we're doing, what's growing, and what we're eating. I invite you to come play along, I love seeing what others are trying. You can join the fun in 2 ways:
- If you blog, I welcome you to write a post or share a post from that week about what's growing in your garden
- If you aren't a blogger, I invite you to join my gardening flickr group and share photos of your garden from this week
- And last - if you don't want to blog or share photos, just follow along and check out all the links and photos and maybe share a comment with your own gardening experience from the week
