We cleared out some space in the garden, harvesting the emerald oak leaf lettuce, fordhook swiss chard, oxheart carrots, watermelon radishes, golden beets, a pound of bush pickler cucumbers and some of the 'Desiree' potatoes. Whew!
***New Desiree potatoes***
***Golden beet - FAIL (well at least we can eat the greens)***
***Oxheart carrot - semi fail***
I realized that since we had such a cold and rainy spring I could probably have left the above crops in the ground a bit longer. Ah well.
**Bush pickler cucumbers***
These cucumbers, though clearly not an actual bush variety (liars!) are super producers. We're going to be pickling all summer.
***Fordhook swiss chard***
***Zinnia - more of these next year for sure***
After we cleared all that space we replaced it with Italian basil, Black Beauty eggplant and Garden salsa hot pepper. I also yanked out a bunch of those marigolds. I'll remember to plant miniatures next time.
And that's how my garden grows.
