It'll be so nice when it is all done & we can relax & enjoy it. In the meantime not much exciting cooking has been going on as we've been eating out or having a lot of salads at home.
Our garden, despite being attacked by slugs during a wet spell, it looking great thanks to an early, warm spring.
The San Marzano, Brandywine & Sweet 100 tomatoes are all showing their first little green fruit. We've never grown Brandywines before & can't believe what a big plant they are. The fruit are supposed to get to be 1 to 1 1/2 pounds each!
The pepper plants all look great but only the jalapenos & ho chi minhs have peppers at this point. I think we are going to have a bumper jalapeno crop. The ho chi minh is something I bought on a whim at the Friends School Plant Sale. I'm hoping they do well as the guy we buy pepper plants from at the farmers market wants a few to save seeds from as they are hard to get.
The broccoli is all ready to harvest & most of the peas have been eaten already. The pole beans have reached the top of their trellis already & just growing like crazy!
We'll be spending the weekend planting the new gardens out front & then Sunday we are excited to be going to our first Tour de Farm dinner. Can't wait to tell you all about it next week, cross your fingers for no thunderstorms....
