Finally — we are starting to see some of the “fruits” of our labor. Here are just a few of the things we have begun to harvest:
This may be my favorite thing that we grow: GARLIC. YUM. Garlic gives twice during the year — first when we harvest the delicious garlic scapes and now as we collect the full heads.
Here is our garlic in the drying racks. We will keep it here for a couple of weeks and then store it in our basement to use during the year. We will cut the “hair” off the bottom of the heads in a few days after the dirt has dried It is just easier that way.
We have A LOT of cucumbers and they are huge. I have also started harvesting some of the beets. This one was particularly large! Xandy yelled at me because I gave the beet greens to the pigs. Hey, a pig’s gotta eat too, right???
My basil has just taken off. Pesto, here I come.
Look at this fabulous dill. Hmmmm…and I have cucumbers…. I think I know what my next post will be! 🙂
Stay tuned for the rest. Tomatoes are coming, and I think that it may be time for coleslaw. Hooray for summer!
