|The letter Pea! Sugar snaps are almost done, the sudden heat is stopping flowering a mere two weeks after it began.|
This week's harvests were outstanding, as I said in my previous post the past week has yielded about 10 lbs of produce.
|Small cabbage, onions and carrots.|
|Graffiti cauliflower and snow peas.|
|Last big harvest, straight out of the garden...|
|Last big harvest after rinsing and trimming.|
On a final note, I broke down and spent more money on the garden. I bought two large felt pots from Bountiful Backyard, after seeing how cute they were on Granny's blog. One says Mina's Garden and the other Alex's garden. I am such a garden hog and micro-manager that I take up all the plantable soil with my veggies, so I figured it would be nice to give the kids their own small garden spaces to plant whatever they want in.
Mina decided on some medicinal plants: vervain, lemon balm, lobelia, yarrow, chamomile, echinacea and calendula. Alex will be planting his later today with a giant Sweet 100 tomato and likely, more carrots, and maybe some nasturtiums or other flowers.
Hope everyone finds great ways to have fun in the heat this week!
